THE GIANT TRAVELING POSTCARD...


Remember its beginning...this base left Michigan on August 27th, 2010.

Entitled, Make Art - Make Friends

Mission - to visit 5 additional artists for them to contribute a piece of themselves to ultimately reflect the theme message.  The postcard traveled a total of 8548 miles!!!  I am an artist (wanna-be); paints and brushes are my main tools.  I had no idea how this would come out or work out... I have learned alot.  Should I attempt something like this again, I will give more direction so that no one feels that they were not given equal opportunity to contribute.  Each artist also sent a journal page/letter once they completed their time with the postcard.  These pages were filled with anticipation and emotion!  I will be compiling these into booklets for each artist to have the complete set.   These pages are works of art on their own.




 Everyone will also get an 8 X 10 print of our completed project!
Thanks to my fellow "artists" for participating!  It was truly a journey.
