June 2014 Travel Update: Random Acts of Art Adventure

It’s been very active past month for the 6 Degrees of Creativity Random Acts of Art Adventure! During the month of May, the project had 4 stops across three different states: Indiana, Maryland, and Virginia:

Paula’s Creative Passport page is dedicate to Giusto Constantino, her paternal Great-grandfather.  Paula shares, “That is him sitting on the stoop of his home in NYC.  He was Sicilian and when ever anything went wrong and someone complained about it he reminded you that, “These are the things that happen to the living.”  In Sicilian it is, “Queste cose succedono ai vivi.”  …and my feeling is that ART is for the living.”

Stop #28 with Debbie in Virginia:

This past month also saw the safe return of the pouch’s Creative Passport (thank you Julie!).  As reported in my last travel update, the Passport Book was full from the previous 24 stops.  The Creative Passport was returned to 6 Degrees of Creativity Headquarters and a new book was mailed to Indiana to artfully document the remainder of the adventure!
