The Studio Museum in Harlem New York, NY

The Studio Museum in Harlem is the nexus for black artists locally, nationally, and internationally, and for work that has been inspired by black culture. It is a site for the dynamic exchange of ideas about art and society.

Founded in 1968, the Studio Museum in Harlem is a contemporary art museum devoted to advancing the work of African-Americans and artists of African descent. By making artwork and exhibitions concrete and personal for each viewer, the Museum provides a context to address contemporary and historical issues presented by artists of African descent.

The Studio Museum's permanent collection represents more than 400 artists, spans 200 years of history, and includes over 1,700 works of art, including paintings, drawings, sculptures, watercolors, photographs, videos, and mixed-media installations. The collection is a record of the growth of the institution and its activities, including its foundational Artist-in-Residence program. The Museum is also the custodian of an extensive archive of the work of photographer James VanDerZee, the quintessential chronicler of the Harlem community from 1906 to 1984.
