Wow what a great stumble to find out about this little gem – this ‘Sketchbook Project’ is such a brilliant project which was brought to life via crowdfunding in 2006!! It’s known to date as the biggest sketchbook library in the world, based in New York City – holding over 36,000 sketchbooks within its space!
I’ve just signed up to add a little Soul Stories love to their collection, yayyy. Will have to keep y’all posted. Watch this space indeed! xt
The Sketchbook Project is an independent Brooklyn-based company that organizes global, collaborative art projects. www.sketchbookproject.com
It’s like a road trip, but with sketchbooks, and anyone – from anywhere in the world – can be a part of the project.
Every sketchbook contributed to the Project will be included in the traveling library and exhibited in cities and towns across the continent. We are including more cities at every opportunity with our custom-fitted Mobile Library trailer. Cities include Brooklyn, Toronto, Chicago, Portland, Austin, Atlanta and the San Francisco Bay Area and many more.
After the tour, all sketchbooks will enter into the permanent collection at Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be shared for the world to see.
