100 Museums to Visit Before You Die

The Studio Museum in Harlem

Location: New York

2013 Exhibitions: Fore (November 11 - March 10), Gordon Parks:A Harlem Family 1967 (November 11 - June 30)

Founded in the politically-charged late 1960s, the Studio Museum of Harlem has firmly established itself as the premiere institution presenting artists of African descent. For over 40 years, the museum's Artist-in-Residence program has created a platform for nearly 100 artists who have gone on to establish highly-regarded careers, such as David Hammons, Mickalene Thomas, and Kehinde Wiley. In addition to their innovative community programs, their Harlem Postcards series invites artists of diverse backgrounds to reflect on the historic and shifting landscape of Harlem. Installed in the lobby, you can view this installation free of charge, but if you see the whole museum, you'll come away with much more than just a postcard.
