I wanted to share with our readers a little about a cool art project currently happening called The Sketch Book Project. It’s sponsored by The Art House, an independent, Brooklyn-based company that organizes global, collaborative art projects. Here’s how they describe their flagship endeavor:
“The Sketchbook Project is a mobile library of artists’ sketchbooks contributed by thousands of creative people from across the globe. It encourages artists from diverse backgrounds — working artists, full-time parents, busy professionals, students — to share their process with each other and the public. Participants sign up online to receive a blank sketchbook, then fill it with artwork and mail it back. The results are cataloged in the Brooklyn Art Library’s permanent collection, displayed online in the Digital Library, and exhibited at art spaces from coast to coast. This year’s traveling exhibition features nearly 7,500 sketchbooks from 88 countries.”
