Little Red Traveling Journal

I am initiating a traveling journal project among nation-wide chapters of the Women's Caucus for Art. 2012 will be the 40th anniversary of this feminist, arts activist organization. The journal will travel from chapter to chapter, with artists adding tiny artwork to the Moleskin journal pages. After the year is over, the journal will travel back to me (unless there is a postal mishap) and it will be auctioned off at our conference in New York City. Artists in my chapter have finished decorating the month of January with all kinds of art, including painting, drawing, printmaking, carved cardboard, fiber art and ink drawings. The front cover is an illumination created by a local artist and the puffy bookmark was created by a visiting performance artist.
