The Postcard Marathon is a series of hand-printed linoleum reliefs that I created in 2018. I sold them throughout the year as a fundraiser for Minds Over Matter, a nonprofit in whose benefit I ran the 2018 NYC Marathon. Minds Over Minds is run by my cousin, Bryan Steinhauer, and it provides support to young adults with traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs. In 2008, a violent assault left Bryan with a TBI; after 6 months in a medically-induced coma, he made an inspiring recovery, has since completed the NYC Marathon 5 times, and annually assembles a team to run the race to benefit his organization.
These #PostcardMarathon linoprints were each inspired by my experience with training for the marathon, and donors to my race fundraiser received them as tokens of my gratitude.
