So, what made you decide to intern with The LP? How does the internship relate to your studies?
The Laundromat Project was one of the CUNY Cultural Corps community partners. Our professional and personal values of art, culture, and social justice matched us.
Can you tell us about an artist or project that has inspired you?
Kerry James Marshall’s retrospective Mastry at The Met galvanized me to see the work of artists’ works and the galleries that hold them as mechanisms for conversations amongst people with very different backgrounds.
What is your favorite… film?
Funk Wav Bounces
Where do you do your laundry?
2 Blocks away from my house.
In your opinion, why does art matter?
Art matters because without it, we would not be human.
