Curator, social sculptor and Laundromat Project Resident Artist Rasu Jilani will engage community members to tell personal stories about the neighborhood they call home. The engagement will include gathering stories and capturing portraits, taken by photographer Stephanie Mei-Ling, from the local storytellers. Follow BEAT on social media to see what residents have to say about Sunset Park. Sunset Park Portraits is an extension of Rasu’s current project Griots in ‘The Stuy,’ where he documents Bed-Stuy into a living online archive.
