Between the Stacks: A Behind the Scenes Look at the Sketchbook Project
Wednesday, Feb 29
Departure Time: 10:00 am Return Time: Approximately 2:00 pm
Wow! It's like a concert tour except with sketchbooks! Thousands of sketchbooks have been created by individuals from all over the world. These are exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour. After the tour, all sketchbooks enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they are barcoded and available for the public to view. While The Brooklyn Art Library will be closed especially for this, come visit with a group of others interested in the project and the process of sketchbooks without the hassle of transportation on your own. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to have presentations by Co-Founder Steven Peterman and the staff of Art House Co-op. They will discuss the development of the Sketchbook Project, this international, traveling exhibition of artist sketchbooks. Highlights will include past group entries, books that push the boundaries of the project, children's sketchbooks, as well as collaborative books. Personalized library cards that enable you to access the reference library of 10,000 sketchbooks will be provided. Additionally, included as part of the registration, each attendee will receive a sketchbook and pre-paid entry to participate in an amazing current Art House Project. Please note: A meal is not provided with this session.
