And thirdly, also in the Reading Room – The Black Book Project. This is a multi-medium collaboration between 44 Colorado artists working on 14 teams. Each team is comprised of 3 to 4 artists who, at the time of the project’s inception, had never met. The first week of March, 2010, each team was given one standard black spiral sketchbook, and participants were asked to cycle the book among their teammates as many times as possible over a 10-week period. There were no rules about how the artists could use the books or what content they could contribute.
