Several months ago I was introduced to Art House Co-op, a community of artists concept based in Brooklyn. Very exciting stuff.
Art House is an independent Brooklyn-based company that organizes global, collaborative art projects. Their flagship endeavor is the Sketchbook Project: an evolving library that features more than 18,000 artists’ books contributed by creative people from 130+ countries. They also operate the Brooklyn Art Library, the storefront exhibition space in the heart of Williamsburg, as a home for all of their projects.
Art House began in 2006 in Atlanta, GA and moved to New York City in 2009. Since that time, the organization has grown into a worldwide community of more than 60,000 artists. By focusing on the intersection of hands-on art making and new technology, Art House nurtures community-supported art projects that harness the power of the virtual world to share inspiration in the real world.
All of the projects are open to everyone.
I have thus far participated in The 4X6 Exchange 2 and The Note Swap. And I just signed up to participate in The Sketchbook Project: 2013.
(there must be some way to make this link live, but I have no idea how to do it. Any help would be appreciated)
