Art House Co-op is sending out blank Moleskine sketchbooks along with a theme to people who sign up to participate. When the books are returned, they will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the country.
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.
Each visitor to the library will receive a barcode, which allows the sketchbooks to be tracked and the information displayed to the artist. Artists have the option of receiving a text message or email each time their book is looked through.
Sign ups are open through October 31st, 2010. Touring starts in March, 2011 and will be hitting Brooklyn, NY, Austin, TX, San Francisco, CA, Portland, ME, Atlanta, GA, Chicago, IL, and other cities.
