What would you say to your childhood home?
It's been awhile, and the house you grew up in is starting to wonder about you... If your childhood home could hear you, what would you say? It might have been an apartment in the big city, a farmhouse in the country, or a cabin in the woods — there's a place from your past that will stay with you forever. Letters to Home is a community art project that asks creative people like you to write a letter to your childhood home. Share an epic backyard adventure, ask a lingering question, or reveal a long-kept secret — we'll transform our storefront exhibition space into a mailbox from the past. Every letter will be added to the Digital Library and archived in a boxed anthology that will join us on the 2012 Sketchbook Project Tour.
Letters to Home is an exhibition created by hundreds of strangers from around the world. Each participant contributes a single letter addressed to a childhood home, reanimating these structures from the past and filling them in on our current lives. The resulting exhibition will transform the Brooklyn Art Library by covering the walls in handwritten memories — each page addressed to a different home. After the Brooklyn opening, every letter contributed to the project will be put together in an Anthology of Letters to Home and exhibited across the globe as part of the 2012 Sketchbook Project World Tour.
