This past Saturday I was lucky enough to attend the 77th Annual Peabody Awards! Be sure to check out the 2018 list of winners!
The George Foster Peabody Awards program, named for American businessman and philanthropist George Peabody, honor the most powerful, enlightening, and invigorating stories in television, radio, and online media.

In 2008, I was asked by the New York Junior League to create a mural at Tony Dapolito Rec Center in Soho. I was so excited because this historic recreation center also houses one of Keith Haring's murals. Lady Liberty is on the second floor basketball courts overlooking the pool where Keith's masterpiece swims across the wall sheltering the pool from the streets of New York.
After nearly a decade, it's time to touch up the art!
Sharing her art for the benefit of others is important to Laura. She has donated work to more than 100 nonprofit organizations, including Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, T.J. Martell Foundation, Habitat for Humanity and Food Fight. This year, Laura's work will be included in the following NYC School Auctions for scholarships and special programs.
