Submit your work to the world's largest collection of sketchbooks. Where it will reside in Brooklyn Art Library's permanent collection, travel to exhibitions across the country and become part of a massive worldwide community of creative people.
Anyone - from anywhere in the world - can be a part of the project. To participate and receive a sketchbook which will become part of Brooklyn Art Library and our traveling exhibitions, sign up in-store or email us if you are interested in participating as the Bott Shoppe Group.
Each artist is sent the same 5''x7'' blank custom SBP sketchbook. We've only got a few rules: first, the book must be used in some way - no sending us back an empty book or a completely different book! Second, the sketchbook must stay within its original dimensions.
Each book will be given a barcode so we can easily catalog it into Brooklyn Art Library's system. Once we catalog it, artists will be able to track where their book travels, how often it is viewed and how many times someone pulled it from the shelf - we want to make sure you can stay connected with your sketchbook!
