Sketchbook Project 2011

Spoke to a good friend and fellow artist, Mary Jennings, yesterday. She told me about the Sketchbook Project 2011. Sounded like an interesting new project. I am signing up today. I never sketch but I have always believed sketching would help conseptualize future paintings.

It's like a concert tour, but with sketchbooks.
Thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the world. After the tour, all sketchbooks will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be barcoded and available for the public to view. Anyone - from anywhere in the world - can be a part of the project.
