The Studio Museum in Harlem is a leading arts organization dedicated to presenting and supporting art by artists of African descent. While its activities are recognized worldwide, the Studio Museum is deeply rooted in the Harlem community, where it was founded in 1968.
Exhibitions on view through October 21, 2012 include "Caribbean: Crossroads of the World," Primary Sources: Artists in Residence 2011—12," "Illuminations: Expanding the Walls 2012," "Harlem Postcards Summer 2012," and "Who, What, Wear: Selections from the Permanent Collection."
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
