Devoted to historical and contemporary works of art by black artists, the Studio Museum first opened its doors in 1967 in a rented loft at 125th and 5th. Since then the Museum has expanded greatly to offer a variety of valuable services to the community. 

Special Exhibitions are central to the Studio Museum's program.  Recent subjects have included Wifredo Lam and His Contemporaries, 1938 - 1952 and Explorations in the City of Light:  African-American Artists in Paris, 1945 - 1965

The Museum has also built an impressive permanent collection of more than 1,500 objects since 1979.  Divided into three categories, the collection features Nineteenth and Twentieth Century African-American Art, Twentieth Century Caribbean and African Art, and Traditional African Art and Artifacts

From an emerging artists program, "Artist-in-Residence" that offers gallery space three times each year to promising young artists, to a Cooperative School Program that places professional artists in Harlem schools to serve as instructors, to the establishment of the premier collection of African American Art in the nation, services and exhibitions of SMH give everyone an opportunity to appreciate the culture that African, African American, and Latino artists have brought us. 

Visitors will enjoy a full calendar of events, including changing Exhibitions, Family and Individual Workshops, Concerts, Demonstrations, and other activities.  Call or visit the Museum's official website.
