The Sketchbook Project is a mobile library of handmade sketchbooks contributed to by thousands of creative people from across the globe. The Project encourages everyone — from anywhere — regardless of their creative background, to create and share their process with the public.
Participants sign up online (2013 registration now underway) 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 museums and arts festivals from coast to coast including right here at The Gladstone July 19th (opening reception), 6-10pm at the 2nd floor gallery.
Demonstrating the power of collaboration: when 10,000 people get together with a common purpose, we can create something uniquely awesome, here’s a look at Gyula Gefin for The Sketchbook Project 2012. Theme: Great Hopes and Massive Failures, titled We Don’t Bleed – When We Don’t Fight. Location: Montreal, Canada.
