Calvino Prompt

This prompt is in the book How To Be An Explorer of the World: Portable Life Museum, by Keri Smith (2008). It's on page 99.

This project won't be so hard to do with Our Town here, will it?. Almost everyone 'round the globe has a "magical, exaggerated, or slightly altered from reality" notion of Our Town.

All we need to do is pile on, right? Go sketch!

The Art Project

Check out the latest from Google: the Art Project

Roam around galleries all over the Western world and zoom in on a single brush stroke in an individual artwork.

The pic at left is the lobby of MOMA, taken from the Art Project. Is that perfect, or what? Says it all.
