The Studio Museum in Harlem is excited to introduce the first in a series of pocketbooks that will explore connections between artworks by artists of African descent, largely from our permanent collection. We are thrilled to be collaborating with our School & Community Partners—this pocketbook edition was created with our ongoing Community Partner, the Ali Forney Drop-In Center in Harlem.
As The Studio Museum in Harlem celebrates Juneteenth, we invite our audiences to consider resources that can provide further information around the legacy of this holiday, the many ways it is celebrated, and how it continues to be a cornerstone of Black culture and celebration in the United States.
When people think about mental health and wellness, museums might not be the first thought that comes to mind. Even as I was studying to become an art therapist, I never considered museums as a site for therapeutic practice.
