By day, Sonia Louise Davis sits at our front desk taking care of all aspects of the department. This is only a small part of what she does in her life. Read this great interview with her on The Laundromat Project blog where you can also see some of her art work. You can also check out her website.
Sonia was a 2011 Create Change Professional Development Fellow at the Laundromat Project, a community-based non-profit arts organization committed to the well-being of people of color living on low incomes. They bring art programs to where our neighbors already are: the local laundromat. The Create Change Professional Development Fellows participate in monthly discussions and workshops designed to help artists deepen their approach to having a socially-engaged creative practice.
If you roam around the Laundromat Project blog, you’ll also see an interview with Program Director, Petruska Bazin Larsen, who happens to be a DPI alum.
