About the Host

Brooklyn Art Library

Brooklyn Art Library is home to the largest collection of artist sketchbooks in the world.

White painted brick, high ceilings, and black exposed beams give the library a hip industrial ambience that pairs well with the warmth and personality of the rows upon rows of sketchbooks.
