Sketchtravel is a unique international charity art project.
This red sketchbook was passed from one artist's hand to another like an Olympic torch in an artistic relay through 12 countries over 4 and half years. Now the book is complete and it will be auctioned on Oct 17th 2011 to benefit the non profit Room to Read
Who would like to help bring the Sketchtravel experience to the public as a series of museum exhibitions?
Sketchtravel, one of the world’s most unique collaborative art projects, traveled more than 75 thousand miles around the world to connect 71 internationally acclaimed artists and helped build five libraries in five third world countries so far.
This amazing project is traveling once again, now as a museum show!
We plan to display professional quality reproductions of all 70 pages of exceptional artwork created for the original sketchbook as well as some behind-the-scenes images and artwork to educate museum patrons about this magical project.
Our first goal is to raise enough to pay for the exhibition at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco from September 2012 through February 2013. If our earnings surpass that, the show will travel to Japan in 2013!
In order to make this project happen, we will have to raise enough to cover our expenses such as framing and printing. Please check out our Kickstarter page for details!
