The Studio Museum's Visitor Center and Marcus Garvey Park

Adult Programs, Kids and Family Programs, inHarlem

Stop by our Visitor Center from 12 to 6 pm to view renderings of our new building, share your thoughts on our Reflection Wall, and learn more about our upcoming inHarlem programs and projects. At 4 pm, join Studio Museum staff and Ayurvedic Practitioner Regina as we convene in Marcus Garvey Park for a series of energetic breathwork and meditative yogic exercises at the sites where Maren Hassinger: Monuments will be installed this summer.

Maren Hassinger: Monuments will consist of eight site-specific sculptures and use locally-sourced branches to create organic forms that respond to aspects of the park’s landscape. This program will take place during the installation of Hassinger's artworks, providing a unique opportunity for the community take part of the conversation around changes that impact their public. With a focus on breathwork, mindfulness, movement, and meditation, the program will encourage participants to actively observe and engage their surroundings and to think about sustainability from many angles. 

This inHarlem Open House is presented as part of Open Engagement 2018 - SUSTAINABILITY. Open Engagement (OE) is an annual, three-day, artist-led conference dedicated to expanding the dialogue around, and creating a site of care for the field of socially engaged art. Now in its 10th year–the last in its current form– OE will bring together hundreds of artists, activists, educators, students, organizations, institutions, and thinkers from every corner of the globe. This year’s program will explore the theme of SUSTAINABILITY, as well as take stock of the field of socially engaged art and practice.
