Ferndale Public Library added a book to their collection about three years ago, meant to facilitate a collaboration between creative types in the community. Two Twenty Two encourages our patrons fill its blank pages with their drawings, or 2/3-dimentional collages. It’s a cataloged sketch book that started out with blank pages awaiting the works of whoever checked it out and felt the inspiration to contribute. Other patrons that borrowed the book could peruse the other local artists’ work and see a charming collage of the inventive side of their neighbors.
You can read more about Two Twenty Two in this month’s issue of Ferndale Friends.
“It’s a fantastic project because anyone who wants to can write in a library book, and their contribution becomes a part of that book that anyone can check out, as long as the book lasts. It’s an interesting archive of a brief time in our local creative history, with artists from all levels, from budding artists like my little girl nieces to established ones who have had their art published elsewhere. I’m very proud of it and glad that it continues to be discovered and contributed to over the years.”
