Melonie Knight

Melonie Knight (b. Brooklyn, NY) is the Development Associate at The Laundromat Project, providing critical administrative support to a dynamic development department. Before joining The LP, she was a Development Intern at the Studio Museum in Harlem and a Program Intern at VIA Art Fund. She holds a BFA from New York University in Studio Art and a Minor in Business of Entertainment, Media, and Technology (BEMT). She believes that creativity is an impelling energy that advocates for our existence and helps us honor and activate our ever-abundant resources, stories, and connections. She’s invested in creative and fundraising work to encourage generosity and collective stewardship of resources. As an artist herself, she collaborates with sensuous, domestic objects such as West African Black Soap, cotton rags, and Epsom salt, to create artworks that reveal everyday opportunities to re-member one another and regenerate into rich futures.
