fbpx Collection | The Studio Museum in Harlem

Collection

The Museum was originally founded as a non-collecting institution, but the mandate to preserve and document the work of artists of African descent quickly became important to its mission. The Museum’s collection, now including over 2,500 objects, has a particular focus on the institution’s exhibition history and Artist-in-Residence program. The collection continues to grow through the stewardship of the Museum’s Acquisition Committee and generous private donors. 

The below list includes the over 700 artists currently represented in the collection. It will be updated periodically to reflect the Museum’s ongoing work to increase access to its collection.
