Global Home: Sicilia 2012
February 2012: Welcome to our journal of our month long immersion into the life, culture and goings on in and around Sciacca, Sicilia. Including our adventures at making art in this beautiful place.
This time though we wanted to experience what it would be to actually live here. Our length of stay (the month of February 2012) and our tiny budget meant that we could not afford to rent a car so we decided to learn how to use the bus (this should add a lot of laughs and hopefully not too much stress) this time. So with a little savings, very little Italiano ("Dov'e l'autobus per Sciacca?") and determination ("Pazzo!") we planned our escape.
Joey, after a lot of searching, found us an apartment in Sciacca right on the port (ours is a one bedroom version of the one linked to, here is the full site http://www.sciaccacase.it/intro.html).

We are really looking forward to making art while we are there too. Joey wants to unleash her sculpture muse and play with all sorts of art materials and I want to do a Sciacca series working with locally gathered pigments. Hopefully we can find a gallery, library or vacant store somewhere to show this new work. (let me know if you have any ideas) when we get back.
We leave on January 31st.
Arrivederci for now.
