Art House Co-op at questions@arthousecoop.com

The goal of the Sketchbook Project is to create a giant collective of sketchbooks from around the globe and make it accessible to everyone. Artists sign up to receive a sketchbook, fill it up with art, and send it back, joining thousands of others that are made by artists from all over the world. Visitors will receive library cards and be able to view the books at exhibitions around the country.

The Art House Co-op was started in 2006 by Steven Peterman and Shane Zucker with the goal of bringing art to the masses. Since they started, they have interacted with thousands of artists from around the world, all brought together with the common goal of creating art and sharing it with each other.

Art House hosts many of the exhibitions for their projects at their gallery in Brooklyn, NY, called The Brooklyn Art Library. In an attempt to give artists as much recognition as possible, as well as providing the opportunity to see the exhibition that they're a part of in person, Art House has started taking select projects to guest galleries around the country.
