ART HOUSE (the Sketchbook Project) also offering a PHOTO PROJECT
CLICK ON PHOTO for direct link to take you to Art House for all the details.
Sign up to receive a disposable camera from Art House, choose a theme that inspires you, and share your interpretation with the world.
Use one of our cameras to capture 27 frames on a single theme and then send us the results. We'll collect your contributions into a traveling exhibition and send them on a journey from coast to coast.
Anyone - from anywhere in the world - can participate in the project.
After you sign up for the project, we'll mail you a package containing a customized Brooklyn Art Library disposable camera, your selected theme, a return envelope for your prints, and detailed instructions.
Participants select a theme of their choosing. One you pick a theme and finish the sign-up process, that theme cannot be changed. Please choose carefully! If you select the "random theme" option, we'll let you know what your theme is when you receive your camera. The themes are intended to be a jumping-off point, not a burden â€“ so feel free to interpret it as you wish.
Exhibitions and the Permanent Collection:
At least one print from each participant will be included in the traveling exhibition. The project will be installed into Photomobile, our custom-built library on wheels. Photomobile will exhibit the collected photographs at galleries and events from coast to coast. We'll also be digitizing select photographs and producing an expanded Web site that will launch next year.
Although we will continue adding tour dates, please note that all dates and locations are subject to change.
Please note that due to the design of the exhibition, we cannot return contributions to this project. Please make duplicates for yourself before mailing your photos to Art House.
Participants must use the camera provided by Art House.
Photos must be exactly 4x6 with no border.
Photos should be printed on glossy paper.
Each participant is guaranteed AT LEAST one print in the traveling exhibition.
Mailing your work to us:
Please postmark your work by June 15, 2011.
Please do not send mail that requires a signature. We will do our best to receive all work in person, but we are not responsible for items returned to sender.
We try to check in all contributions as quickly as possible. However, it is a long process â€“ especially as the deadline approaches. Please note: we will check in all work at least one week prior to the first exhibition date.
Art House does everything possible to keep your work in tip-top shape. However, stuff does sometimes happen. Unfortunately, we cannot replace work that is lost, stolen, damaged or eaten by bears. We will work hard to make any unforseen situation better, but we are not responsible for these occurances.
Your work is your work. We will never ever sell your work without your permission. We will, however, use contributions in promotional materials, web ads, print ads, and the like. We will also publish your work in a companion catalog for the project. We reserve all copyrights to the published materials.
We will always do our best to respond to any questions or issues in a timely manner. To help us assist everyone quickly and efficiently, please read through our FAQs and the project rules before emailing us.
Stay informed! Sign up for updates from Art House and check back with the AMLP Web site to stay in the know as the project develops.
