Support our work amplifying art and artists of African descent. Donate to the Studio Museum Fund.
The Studio Museum in Harlem, founded to champion, empower, and celebrate artists of African descent, has continued steadfastly in its mission for over fifty years. One of the Museum’s original initiatives, the Artist-in-Residence program has supported over one hundred artists early in their careers. The permanent collection, informally begun by artists who saw the critical need for institutional stewardship of their work, is now recognized as one of the most important public collections of works by black artists.
