The Sketchbook Project, yet another export from the burgeoning cultural mecca of Brooklyn, makes an appearance August 27. 2013 noon to 6 PM, in the parking lot of Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, 2298 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard, Nashville, Tennessee. The Sketchbook Project is a crowd-sourced art project and interactive traveling exhibition of handmade books. Their mission is to allow anyone to be able to participate in art, especially those who say they are not artists, by creating a personal sketchbook illustrating their own inspirations and creative processes.
The mobile library of the Sketchbook Project is like a taco truck with sketchbooks, taking examples from the over 27,000 in the project’s collection out into communities across the country. Come by Watkins College of Art, Design & Film 12 noon to 6 PM to make a sketchbook, view a sketchbook from the collection and join the Sketchbook Project community.
Don’t forget the Sketchbook Collective project and exhibition coming up as part of Handmade & Bound Nashville. Check it out.
