I want to receive letters at my personal residence that are addressed to an art project of mine, and will not have my name on them. Will these letters be delivered, or do I need to take extra steps to ensure they won't get returned to the original senders?

I'm starting up an art project in April, to coincide with National Poetry Month. Long story short, I'm going to get a ton of stickers printed up... and then give them away to anyone who sends me a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope).
Rather than use my own name, I'd like to use the name of the project. So people would use this as the "To" address:
Art Project Name
123 Fake Street, Apartment 2
Chicago, IL 60647
Do I need to be registered officially as a business or non-profit, for this to work? Or does the US Post Office not care, so long as the address itself is a valid one? Again, I'm doing this as a personal project and am not selling anything or taking donations or whatnot. You send me a SASE, I send back some stickers.
It dawns on me now that I could just send myself a letter titled in this way, and see if it works. Just curious if anyone's done this before, and could add a little insight.
