SPECIAL GUEST: THE SKETCHBOOK PROJECT
SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 5-9 p.m.
In addition to our Opening Reception on Saturday, August 17
, we invite you to please join us that evening from 5-9 p.m.
as we welcome our SPECIAL GUEST, The Sketchbook Project
to Art Saint Louis.
The Sketchbook Project is a global, crowd-sourced art project &
traveling exhibition. Since 2006, the Sketchbook Project has encouraged
participants from all walks of life to fill the pages of a blank
sketchbook. The results are cataloged in the Brooklyn Art Library and
shared with the public in venues around the world. The collection
currently includes more than 26,000 sketchbooks representing nearly
8,000 cities worldwide.

summer, Steven Peterman, co-founder of the Sketchbook Project, and Sara
Peterman, director of the Brooklyn Art Library, are hitting the road to
share the stories behind the Sketchbook Project with communities across
North America. The husband-and-wife duo have set out for adventure in
the Mobile Library - their custom-built bookmobile - along with a
selection of 4,500 sketchbooks from the permanent collection. Covering
more than 10,000 miles and 32 cities in just four months, the Summer
Tour is a unique opportunity to experience the Sketchbook Project
firsthand and swap stories with the project's organizers.
The Summer Tour
includes stops in every corner of the country, from Portland, Maine to
Los Angeles and a brief stop in St. Louis at Art Saint Louis in between.
This year marks the Sketchbook Project's first visit to many wonderful
venues, including the Hunter Museum in Chattanooga, the Milwaukee
Institute of Art and Design, and the Dahl Art Center in Rapid City, SD.
part of the adventure, Steven and Sara are documenting the entire
Summer Tour for an upcoming book. "We're excited to collect stories from
the people and places we encounter throughout the summer," says Steven.
"It's an opportunity for us to share a pretty crazy experience -
traveling across the country with thousands of sketchbooks and meeting
thousands of people along the way." The book will bring together stories
from Steven and Sara's escapades on the road with a behind-the-scenes
look at the process of bringing a community art project to life. The
goal is to continue inspiring people from diverse backgrounds to make
art. "Given all the ways that technology has integrated with our lives,
it feels meaningful to meet new people over physical books," says
Steven. "This project is about people leaving their mark in the world."
The Sketchbook Project's Mobile Library, hosted by Sara & Steven Peterman, will be set up outside of Art Saint Louis from 5-9 p.m. on Saturday, August 17, 2013.
It opens one hour before the Art Saint Louis reception begins, so, stop
by and meet Steven & Sara Peterman and learn about The Sketchbook
Project, check out a sketchbook, and enjoy this unique art event--it's
FREE and open to the public.
