Join us in welcoming Salvador Muñoz to The LP fam! Salvador recently joined our board of directors—read our short Q&A to get to know him!
The LP: As a supporter of the arts, why does art matter?
Salvador Muñoz: Art is a powerful catalyst for change and growth. Art expands our limitations of what is possible, allows us to envision a better world and to channel our creative production into manifesting that world.
LP: What attracted you to The LP and excited you most about joining the board?
Salvador: As an alum of The LP’s Create Change Program and Artist Residency, I couldn’t be more thrilled to be joining the board! The Laundromat Project has had a huge influence on my work as an artist, cultural worker, and arts administrator, and I’m excited to leverage my skills to be in greater service to the organization and the artists and communities they serve.
LP: What is your neighborhood? What’s your favorite thing about it?
Salvador: Bed-Stuy! My favorite thing about my neighborhood is the culture of resilience, especially among long-time residents.
LP: Can you tell us about a project/event/moment that was a particular highlight of your personal/professional work?
Salvador: My recently-completed Van Lier fellowship and solo exhibition at Wave Hill. This was my largest work to date and it was a pleasure to be able to share it with my communities.
LP: What song gets you moving and going when work gets hard?
Salvador: Anything by Megan Thee Stallion
LP: What’s your favorite home-cooked dish?
