The 2016 - 1st annual Mail Box Art Contest. The purpose of the contest is to make everyday mailboxes a conversation piece. Everyone is welcome to enhance a Standard Postal Approve Mailbox. These works of art will be sold at a silent auction during the 2016 Mt. Shasta Car Show N Shine event.

We had these fun, beautiful, creative works of art that showed our community pride and give artists/crafters a special way to showoff their talents. So everyone, any group and all clubs were encouraged to join in on this event. You can paint – glue – enhance the mail boxes with flowers, mini cars, stuffed toys, metal craft, mosaic, wood any thing goes but….. Keeping in mind that children, pets and human error will be around and/or handling these mailboxes the artist went to work.
