Risë Wilson is founder of the Laundromat Project, a non-profit organization that brings art-making programs to Laundromats in low-income neighborhoods throughout New York City. The Project promotes community engagement through art-making, and creates opportunities for artists to develop projects inspired by the uniqueness of the space. The organization also has a professional development fellowship for artists whose work is socially engaged. She has made a career around creating positions for artists to teach, make work, and expand their professional networks. Check out Risë‘s profile.
