See my cheeky screen-grab joke? Is it horribly tacky? Definitely immature, I know.
Anyway, The Brooklyn Art Library (aka Art House Co-Op, aka The Sketchbook Project) is so awesome.
The mobile library will make stops in a handful of cities — Atlanta, Portland, Chicago, Toronto, San Francisco. I’ll get an email notification if/when someone checks it out. Fun, right?
Are you in Austin, TX today? Ask for card catalog # 204.7-9. That’s mine. I memorized it, because I’m a dork.
Sometimes when The Sketchbook Project’s mass mailings show up in my in-box, I think, oy, they’re selling again. But I’m quick to correct myself — because how dare I be so curmudgeonly as to knock anyone encouraging the doing of art? So they ask us to chip in some money? That’s the world — things cost money.
The reality is that there are plenty of free community projects offered. So, if you aren’t familiar with them, I encourage you to check it out: The Sketchbook Project.
Let’s do art!
If you have work in any of Art House’s tours or in their digital library, I hope you’ll mention it here in the comments with links. I want to see!
p.s. Much more interesting than sex gossip — where does the money come from?
