FAC's Arthur Dove is a USPS 2013 forever stamp

Posted By on Fri, Mar 22, 2013 at 5:25 PM

Thanks to a late-afternoon tweet from the Broadmoor, I found out that the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center now has another claim to fame: one of its pieces is part of the United States Postal Service's Modern Art in America 1913-1931 2013 forever stamp collection.

Arthur Dove, USPS

The work is Arthur Dove's 1929 painting "Fog Horns," which belongs to the FAC's permanent collection. Unveiled in late 2012, Dove's work is part of a 12-stamp series that includes pieces by Georgia O'Keeffe, Man Ray and Marsden Hartley.

You can buy the stamp series here, and a framed print of the stamp here.
