Thank you to everyone participating in this year’s Sketchbook Project. You all have turned this little idea into an experience beyond our wildest expectations. Last year we were blown away by the 3,600 artists in the project. This year, there are an astonishing 28,592 artists participating from 94 countries around the world!
For two kids who started throwing art shows in their sophomore year of college just to bring their friends together, we are truly amazed and humbled by the excitement and enthusiasm surrounding this year’s Sketchbook Project. With each new endeavor, you have challenged us to expand the scale and connectivity of Art House while helping us stay grounded in this unique community. Thanks for keeping us on our toes.
One of the most satisfying elements of our work is the Sketchbook Tour – witnessing people exchanging “hellos” like old friends – only to realize that the artists have, until now, only known each other online. As the Sketchbook Project grows along with the Art House community, we’re eager to expand our connection in the physical world, too. The whole team is thrilled by the opportunity to present our largest and most diverse exhibition ever and excited to unveil some new initiatives for cataloging, accessing and appreciating your work. And we can’t wait to see both old friends and new faces on the upcoming tour.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for taking this ride with us.
Shane & Steven and the Art House crew
