The June 12th ArtDate marked the seven month anniversary of Traveling Postcards. Over 200 cards have been made, half of which are in transit or have been given away. Each card represents one voice, one expression of love and one understanding that a woman has been seen.
Every event is unique and this Traveling Postcards was no exception. We had our first male participant! Richard Bacon is a student in the MA Transformative Arts program at JFK University, and he created 4 different cards in which he honors 4 special women. One of the important aspects of Traveling Postcards is the ability to dedicate a card to a women who has made a difference in your life.
Richard has made a moving and beautiful tribute to these women by acknowledging all that they have meant to him, and has given other women around the world the same opportunity to see themselves through his cards.
We had many other spectacular postcards created at ArtDate as well. Please visit www.travelingpostcards.org to see all the handy work!
Next up, more fun with Soroptimist International and a long awaited trip to Costa Rica!
