The Studio Museum in Harlem

The Studio Museum in Harlem


The Studio Museum in Harlem is a contemporary art museum that focuses on the work of artists of African descent locally, nationally and globally, as well as work that has been inspired and influenced by African-American culture, through its exhibitions, Artists-in-Residence program, education and public programming, permanent collection, archival and research facilities. The Studio Museum in Harlem is committed to serving as a unique resource in its local community and in national and international arenas by making art works and exhibitions concrete and personal for each viewer and providing a context within which to address the contemporary and historical issues presented through art created by artists of African descent.


Artists are expected to work in the studio a minimum of twenty hours per week and participate in open studios and public programs. At the end of the residency, an exhibition of the artists’ work is presented in the Museum’s galleries.
