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.
The Laundromat Project is collaborating with partners at Museum Hue and Hester Street on a new, comprehensive online platform for NYC arts entities called HueArts NYC. Through a user-friendly map, searchable online directory, and field report, HueArts NYC will aggregate information on arts entities created by and centering Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, and all People of Color (POC) in New York City. To be released in December 2021, HueArts NYC will amplify impact and increase support for these performing and presenting arts entities.
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.
