Leslie Jimenez – A World Inside Drawing


As a 2018 Create Change Artist-in-Residence, Leslie Jimenez facilitated a series of collaborative art-making workshops with families in the Sugar Hill section of Harlem. During the gatherings, community members created illustrated books of drawings inspired by memories and experiences in their neighborhood. 

The workshops culminated in a large-scale interactive installation featuring the illustrated book drawings and larger-than-life, diorama-like versions of the drawings, as interpreted by the artist. A World Inside Drawing celebrated community members and familial neighborhood spaces, acting as a sanctuary where neighbors could literally see themselves inside their own creations.
