Partners in Conversation is an interview series that highlights the Studio Museum’s partnership educators, school leadership, artists, and community organization staff.

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.
