PostSecret coming to UAlbany

Here's something to look forward to: PostSecret, the post card confessional web series, is bringing one of its touring exhibits to UAlbany. The site's exhibit schedule reports it will be at UAlbany's performing arts center from January 19 to February 11.

PostSecret describes itself as "an ongoing community art project where people
mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard." The cards are often creatively decorated or illustrated. Among the recently posted secrets :

"I'm 25 and finally in a loving, committed relationship. It just happens to be with a married couple."
"I'm convinced that being a Mets fan has taken years off my life!"
"The romance of being with a pilot has worn off. I want my own adventure."
"We haven't been dating long, but I constantly daydream about our Star Wars theme wedding."

The site started in 2004 -- and quickly became very popular. Material from the site has since been turned into four books.

(Thanks, Jessica R!)

Someone walked up to me yesterday and told me that I was in a video on Postsecret. He said that I was in Washington Park w/ my dog a few months ago when they were taping. I had no idea I was video taped but now that I know I'd like to see the video. Do you know how I can find the video? thanks!

Go to YouTube and search for Postsecret...I think the one that was partially shot in The ALB pops up first.
