How cute is this? How cool is this? I wonder how many books are in there? I want that job!! As a kid I looked forward every Thursday afternoon when the bookmobile arrived in my neighborhood shopping plaza at 3:30. I devoured books like other kids ate candy. Biographies, history, mysteries, adventure, arts, music, photography, sailing, architecture, travel, and more. I guess some things never change. Can’t wait to go see this itty bitty library on wheels!

A vintage bookmobile is road tripping all over America — and of course it’s spending the winter leg of its trip in Florida. The concept from the Brooklyn Art Library is an amalgam of creativity. Shelved inside a rebuilt 1985 Piaggio are hundreds of sketchbooks from the museum’s archives.

https://ilovetheburg.com/art-on-wheels-brooklyn-bookmobile-set-to-cruise-through-the-burg/

The minds behind the Bookmobile consider it an “installation to engage with local communities on a deeper level. More than just an opportunity to browse sketches, visitors will learn about the complex cataloging system and how to mobilize a global project.

The vintage museum on wheels will make several pitstops in the Tampa Bay region.

From December 18 through December 20 it will be posted up outside Intermezzo at 1111 Central Avenue in St. Petersburg. The Bookmobile will also be in attendance at the St. Pete Saturday Morning Market on December 15 and December 22.

Want to participate in this project? You can order your own sketchbook and send it back filled with the images and ideas in your head. Your work will then travel with the Bookmobile as an ever growing, ever changing exchange of ideas.

Learn more about the project on the Sketchbook website. You can also get a bit more on the background of the Brooklyn Art Museum by visiting their website. There’s plenty of flights from TPA to La Guardia, JFK and Newark International if you’re ever itching to experience Brooklyn.

Had an awesome time at The Dali Museum last Saturday with my daughter and grandkids. The Dali Museum gives kids’ tours on Saturday mornings and has a kids craft room where they can create Dali-inspired art pieces. Granddaughter’s collage is below but my Grandson made an interactive movable fly & dragonfly collage. When I played, the dragonfly won the race. A good time was had by all! Thank you MY FAMILY!! So nice to have you visit-much too short of a visit, as usual.

So if you’re in St Pete, with or without kids, The Dali Museum is a wonderful place to spend the day. There are permanent displays of Dali’s work and special exhibits of other artists that have collaborated with or been influenced by Salvador Dali. SO you need to check their website calendar.
