Martin Ramirez stamp launch in New York captured on Twitter
The U.S. Postal Service's new stamp set featuring the artwork of Martin Ramirez was launched March 26 at the Ricco Maresca Gallery in New York City, and plenty of tweeters were on hand to capture and share moments from the ceremony.
The stamps feature hand-drawn designs created by the Mexican-born Ramirez during his time spent in a Northern California mental hospital.
Here are some images from the Thursday night event:
