A very dear friend of mine works at a museum, whose staff receives dozens
of exhibition announcements from other museums and galleries, many of
which are like very large postcards. She periodically sends me a huge
and heavy box of these things, which have been a fantastic resource.
Some are works by famous artists, some emerging.

No, I won't give you her name or address :) but I'll bet if you check
with local galleries or museums they would love to see their mail go to a
good home and worthy cause.
