The Sketchbook Project

So I just heard about this brilliant concept called the Sketchbook Project which is run by Art Host Co-op.

Here is the concept:

- If you choose to participate, each artist is sent the same blank Moleskine Cahier sketchbook.

- There's two rules:

  • Rule 1: the book must be used in some way you can not send it back as an empty book or a different book to Art House Co-Op.
  • Rules 2: the sketchbook must stay within its original dimensions.

When submitted, each book will be given a barcode so they can be catalogued into The Brooklyn Art Library system. Once the books are catalogued, each artists will be able to track where on the tour their book is viewed and how many times someone pulled it from the shelf.

Here's a video from CNN highlighting the brilliant concept and why you should get involved.

The books will be toured in various libraries around the United States.

So will you be participating and show the world your creative minds and skills? YES!
