I ran across this project today and had to post the link to my fellow artisans. This looks like a fun project and a way to get some exposure. Go to The Sketchbook Project.
Here is how it works: I buy a sketchbook, fill it with my sketches based on a theme of my choosing. I mail it to the project leaders. They in turn, send my sketchbook to museums and galleries around the United States for people to view. My sketchbook is bar coded so that I can track my book wherever it goes. After the tour, my sketchbook will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library.
How cool is that? Anyone up for some sketching?????
