From the people who brought you the Sketchbook Project — Brooklyn’s Art House Co-op — a new challenge (deadline to register April14, 2012).
The many faces of the Art House Co-op community
What does our creative community look like? How do you see yourself when you close your eyes? The Self-Portrait Project is an opportunity to introduce yourself to the world — one canvas at a time. Whether you feel challenged to depict yourself in photographic detail or to abstract your personality in visual form, this project will bring together the many faces of the Art House community in our storefront project space. Each participating artist will receive an empty 4″ x 4″ canvas with the same mission: Show us who you are. The resulting wall of portraits will open thousands of windows into our community, sharing something about ourselves for the entire world to see.
And speaking of the Sketchbook Project — the world tour (but with sketchbooks) starts April 14, 2012, kicking off at the Brooklyn Art Library (103A N. 3rd Street) and traveling to 14 cities in four countries. Thousands of themed sketchbooks have been contributed by artists from over 102 countries. Visit the collection, register for your “library card” and peruse to your heart’s content.
