The health and wellbeing of our university community and members of our extended community are always first, so in keeping with federal and state health and safety guidelines related to Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), Lesley University has postponed this event. We’re monitoring this situation and will make rescheduling decisions as soon as circumstances allow. Please continue to consult lesley.edu/events and lesley.edu/covid-19 for updates.


Lesley's College of Art and Design presents the internationally recognized Sketchbook Project and its Bookmobile, a converted gelato truck from the Brooklyn Art Library that houses some of the Sketchbook Project’s archive of over 41,000 books from 130 countries. We invite the general public and Lesley community to engage with the 500+ sketchbooks in the Bookmobile during the week it is parked inside the Lunder Arts Center atrium.
