The Sketchbook project...

The Sketchbook Project: 2011

It's like a concert tour but with sketchbooks....

Thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the country.

After the tour, all sketchbooks will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be barcoded and available for the public to view.

Each artist is sent the same blank Moleskine sketchbook. ..fee $25.00

We've only got two rules: first, the book must be used in some way - no sending us back an empty book or a completely different book!

Second, the sketchbook must stay within its original dimensions

(because we don't want to have to provide an extra suitcase just for your book while we're touring the country).

Each book will be given a barcode so we can easily catalog it into The Brooklyn Art Library system.

Once we catalog it, artists will be able to track where on the tour their book is viewed and how many times someone pulled it from the shelf - we want to make sure you can stay connected with your sketchbook!

All books will be included in an exhibition that tours the following cities:

Anyone - from anywhere in the world - can be a part of the project.
