Studio Museum in Harlem
1 of 70
The Studio Museum in Harlem
has been promoting the work of African-American artists since it opened in 1968. The museum supports the work of people like Wangechi Mutu, Kehinde Wiley, Chakaia Booker, David Hammons, Julie Mehretu, Mickalene Thomas and Kerry James Marshall, all emerging artists. Permanent exhibits
feature a range of items, including photographs, paintings, sculptures and mixed media. Public programs
bring art to the community through lectures and demonstrations. Most of the work featured dates from the 20th century, but some pieces stretch as far back as the 1800s. The shop
carries merchandise, such as books, catalogs and art, that document works done by African-American artists.
