Opened in 1968 in a rented loft at Fifth Avenue and 125th Street, the Studio Museum in Harlem has long been showcasing the works of artists of African descent. With its Artist-in-Residence program, the museum has become the place for rising talent, having graduated nearly 100 artists, including Chakaia Booker, David Hammons, Julie Mehretu, Wangechi Mutu, and Kehinde Wiley. In addition to rotating exhibitions, the museum houses a permanent collection of more than 1,700 works ranging from paintings to sculpture, and it also serves as custodian of an extensive archive of photographer James VanDerZee's work.
