Art Jones – Portrait of the Community as a Block

Hunts Point

Portrait of the Community as a Block will focus on the stores where people work and shop—the bodega, hair salon, dollar store, take-out restaurant, and, of course, laundromat. Together with Hunts Point residents, Art Jones will record stories, anecdotes, jokes, urban legends, and histories about their experiences buying and selling in the neighborhood. They will produce still, video, and audio portraits of people working and shopping on the block. The project will culminate with a photographic, audio, and video-based exhibition of community portraits at a Hunts Point laundromat.
