The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York City Overview

The Studio Museum in Harlem promotes, curates and displays art created by artists of African descent. Established in 1968 by a diverse group of founders to make accessible and showcase African and African American culture to the community and the general public, the museum started off in a rented loft and in 1982 was moved to its own building in Manhattan which remains its current location. The museum, in its effort to engage the local African American community, hosts a highly coveted artist-in-residence program that has produced over 100 graduates who have gone on to become well established artists.

There are also frequent panel discussions, talks and educational programming organised inhouse and at remote locations by the museum. Its permanent collection holds over 2000 paintings, sketches, pastels, mixed media works and installations created by the resident artists as well as other notable artists of the African community, giving visitors a comprehensive look into contemporary Black culture and its historical background.
