Great News from The Laundromat Project
By Lorie Novak | Published
With generous support from the Andy Warhol Foundation ($75,000) and the Lambent Foundation ($50,000) The LP will increase the number of artists we can invite to participate in our annualCreate Change program. Every year The LP invites artists of color to mount site-specific projects at their local laundromats as a Create Change Public Artist in Residence. In 2011 The LP will accept more artists into the program, increase their production budget and stipend, and add a commissioning opportunity for program alumni. Additionally Create Change will expand to includeprofessional development opportunities for artists from all backgrounds and stages of their career interested in developing or deepening a public art practice. And last but not least, we are coming to a city near you…The LP is in the planning stages of bringing Create Change to two pilot communities outside of NYC. Want us to come to your local Laundromat? We are open to new partnerships, so please be in touch by emailing info@laundromatproject.
