Celebrate Harlem Week! Embellished Portraits
with The Laundromat Project
Can you express who you are in a series of words? How about an image?
Come to this workshop and tell us your story with a portrait. Inspired by artist Ebony G. Patterson's work from the Caribbean: Crossroads of the World exhibition, participants will embellish selected portraits with found objects, fabric, and trimmings to express their identity. Throughout history, portraits have been used to explore personal points of view during a specific moment in time. Whether it’s a painting or a photograph, artists have used portraiture as a means to retell their history and carve out their identity, and now you can too!
