Sunday, June 23, CAM Raleigh welcomes the Sketchbook Project Summer Tour from 12:00 p.m.—5:00 p.m. in the courtyard. The Sketchbook Project Mobile Unit looks like a food truck and functions like a library. It is a global, crowd-sourced art project and interactive, traveling exhibition of handmade books.

Since 2006, the Sketchbook Project has encouraged participants from all walks of life to fill the pages of a blank sketchbook. The Sketchbook community is made up of more than 75,000 people. The permanent collection is catalogued at the Brooklyn Art Library and holds more than 26,000 sketchbooks from135 countries and nearly 8,000 cities. Steven Peterman, co-founder of the Sketchbook Project, and Sara Peterman, director of the Brooklyn Art Library, will be in Raleigh on Sunday to share the stories behind the Sketchbook Project.

Bring your sketchbook to CAM Raleigh to draw, create, write, ideate, block, list, rhyme and share. The event is FREE and features pop up ice cream from Escazu Artisan Chocolate. Museum entry is free when you show your sketchbook. Sketchbooks can also be purchased at the Sketchbook Project.
