Partners in Conversation is an interview series that highlights the Studio Museum’s partnership educators, school leadership, artists, and community organization staff. These interviews seek to document and archive their experiences and to share their stories—in their own words—of connecting to the Studio Museum, Harlem, and artists of African descent.
