Paying homage to artist Romare Bearden and civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., The Laundromat Project presents a portrait workshop that asks participants to employ Bearden's iconic collage technique to create a portrait of the person that they aspire to be. Using some of Dr. King's quotes as a source of inspiration, completed portraits will integrate color, Xerox copies, magazines, and textiles to creatively illustrate a figurative image that includes the qualities each participant wishes to embody in 2012.
