HueArts NYC Brown Paper


HueArts NYC project partners, Museum Hue, The Laundromat Project, and Hester Street, offer deep gratitude to our boards for their wholehearted support and to our hardworking and visionary teams for making this project a reality in the midst of a pandemic and many other duties.

Funding Partners

We are grateful for the early and definitive support from the following: Deborah Cullen-Morales, Emil Kang, Kibra Yohannes at The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; Rocio Aranda-Alvarado and Lane Harwell at the Ford Foundation; Commissioner Gonzalo Casals, Angela Kingham, Ryan Max, and Anthony Meyers at the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. They embodied trust and abundance by investing meaningful support and then stepping out of the way to let the work happen.
