Six Degrees of Separation is the theory that everyone on Earth can be linked to each other through a chain of six people. This exhibit demonstrates how seemingly unrelated people are connected to each other -- not through other people, but through everyday objects. There will be one artifact displayed at 6 different sites throughout Shippensburg beginning with an opening reception on Friday, September 6.

Each display provides information about six people and the important contributions they made to society. Although these people never interacted, their lives intersected through an association with a locally-owned artifact. 

There will also be a selfie station with different props at each location. Photograph yourself in fun ways and post your pictures in Instagram with the hashtag #6degreesofship.
