About the Museum Drawing Project
From October 1, 2006, through June 30, 2007, my plan was to visit the public spaces of the Carnegie Museum of Art
and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History
in Pittsburgh, every day the museums were open.
I drew something in a small sketchbook in response to each day's experience, and posted that drawing here, with short written reflection or response. Anyone was welcome to visit and comment. I was particularly interested in exploring what happens when my work moves from private (small sketchbook) to public (website) as it is experienced by an audience both in public (museum spaces) and in private (computer screen).
