A Philly-made USPS mailbox that danced outside Convention Center will go into Smithsonian

One of the cardboard U.S. Postal Service mailboxes that danced outside the Convention Center as election votes were being counted in November will be featured in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington.

The mailbox puppets — created and designed by Spiral Q, an organization that uses art, puppetry, and street theater to advocate for equity and inclusion — were a viral sensation as all eyes were on Philadelphia to finish counting its mail-in ballots in the 2020 election.
