Just a quick heads up, the Sketchbook Project Mobile Library has hit the road on its inaugural journey, fully-loaded with over 1,000 sketchbooks selected by yours truly for an amazing show, A Landmark and A Mission. Look at that trailer! The project will be making stops in Pittsburgh (tonight), Ann Arbor on Saturday and Cleveland on Sunday. Check out the official site for more details.

A Landmark & A Mission: Colossal Partners with the Sketchbook Project to Create a Mobile Library Tour

September 10, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I’m thrilled to announce Colossal’s first ever collaborative show with Art House Co-Op’s Sketchbook Project called A Landmark & A Mission. If you’re not familiar, the Sketchbook Project is a global, crowd-sourced art project where participants from all walks of life are sent sketchbooks to fill with art as they see fit. After completion the books are returned for annual inclusion in a permanent collection at The Brooklyn Art Library which now houses over 22,000 sketchbooks from 130 countries. That alone is pretty fantastic, but wait, there’s more.

With generous support from Ugg Australia’s Creative Council the Sketchbook Project is building a custom-crafted trailer that will contain 1,000 sketchbooks I’ve selected around the theme ‘A Landmark & A Mission’ for inclusion in this first-ever mobile sketchbook library. In early November we’ll drive around the U.S. with stops in Pittsburgh, Ann Arbor, and Cleveland to share hundreds of artists work with you. It’s like art meets libraries meets road trip. Stay tuned for more details, and hopefully we’ll see you soon.
