Save the Date: The Sketchbook Project is Coming to Memphis

Posted by Holly Whitfield | August 19th 2013 1452 0

For one night only, you can check out art from around the world without the hassle of a plane ticket when the Mobile Sketchbook Library parks in Memphis on Thursday, Aug. 29.


Steven and Sarah Peterman have been spending the summer driving their mobile sketchbook library more than 18,000 miles, stopping in more than 30 cities. They'll be parking at Crosstown Arts in Memphis on August 29th.

You can peruse the mobile library – which holds more than 4,500 sketchbooks created by artists and non-artists around the world –  outside of Crosstown Arts from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m. At 6 p.m., it turns into a party with live music from Jeff Hulett's one-man band, food from the Los Jarochos taco truck, ice cream, drinks and more.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
