The Studio Museum in Harlem is the nexus for artists of African descent locally, nationally, and internationally and for work that has been inspired and influenced by black culture. It is a site for the dynamic exchange of ideas about art and society.
The Studio Museum in Harlem’s permanent collection represents more than 600 artists, spans 200 years of history and includes over 2,500 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.
Throughout the Museum’s history we have proudly shown the collection and have been honored to loan works around the country and the world.
