Collection

The Studio Museum in Harlem’s permanent collection represents more than 700 artists, spans 200 years of history and includes over 2,500 works of art, including paintings, drawings, sculptures, watercolors, photographs, videos and mixed-media installations. The collection is a record of the growth of the institution and its activities, including its foundational Artist-in-Residence program. Throughout the Museum’s history we have proudly shown the collection and have been honored to loan works around the country and the world.

We are thrilled to be in the early stages of a long-term project to share our collection online and prompt a new era of exploration and presentation.
