Special Projects & Collaborations
The LP maintains a practice of collaborating with peers in the community-engaged art field to create, commission, and support innovative artworks and projects that create change. Practicing an abundance framework, we value our communities’ and ecosystem’s collective capacity to shape an equitable future. Together, we encompass everything we need.
In partnership with Museum Hue and Hester Street, The Laundromat Project has released a new, comprehensive online platform for NYC arts entities of color called HueArts NYC. Through a user-friendly map, searchable online directory, and “brown paper” report, HueArts NYC aggregates information on arts entities created by and centering Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, and other People of Color in New York City, to increase visibility and support for their work. Read more about HueArts NYC on our blog, and dive into the resource below.
100 Years | 100 Women
The Laundromat Project was one of 10 commissioning partners to participate in Park Avenue Armory’s 100 Years | 100 Women initiative. Marking the centennial of the 19th amendment, which granted some women the right to vote in the US, the project invited artists to create original works across diverse media to explore the complexity of women’s suffrage, as well as themes such as citizenship, resistance, and healing. The LP commissioned five Create Change alumni: artists Karina Aguilera Skvrisky, Abby Dobson, Katherine Toukhy, Jaime Sunwoo, and LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs.
