A Collaborative Art Project Supporting Artists and Bringing Creators Together
The 2020 MPLSART Sketchbook Project is a unique survey of the Twin Cities visual arts community during a most challenging year. Over the last several months of 2020, 69 local artists contributed 120 original works to a series of five traveling sketchbooks.
In the context of the pandemic, racial reckoning, and political division, the sketchbooks quietly passed from artist to artist throughout the Twin Cities. For some artists, their contribution is an expression of their anguish or their sense of hope. For others, the project helped overcome intense creative block or allowed them to try something new that they carried forward in their practice. Regardless, every image in the sketchbooks is infused with the artists’ mind and heart, capturing the spirit of the times.
