Put A Piece of Yourself Out Into The World Forever
It's so inspiring when we come across an organization that truly embraces creativity and encourages people to participate. The Sketchbook Project is no exception, encouraging anyone with any background, not just artists, to simply create and contribute.
"We are an independent Brooklyn-based company that organizes global, collaborative art projects. Our flagship endeavor is The Sketchbook Project, a crowd-sourced library that features 34,326 artists' books contributed by creative people from 135+ countries."
"Brooklyn Art Library is our storefront exhibition space in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY where The Sketchbook Project collection is on view to the public."
"The Sketchbook Project began in 2006 in Atlanta, GA and moved to New York City in 2009. Since that time, our small organization has grown into a worldwide community of more than 70,000 artists."
"By focusing on the intersection of hands-on art making and new technology, The Sketchbook Project nurtures community-supported art projects that harness the power of the virtual world to share inspiration in the real world."
