Studio Museum in Harlem

Studio Museum in Harlem Review

Contemporary art by African-American, Caribbean, and African artists is the focus of this small museum with a light-filled sculpture garden. Recent exhibits included Gordon Parks: A Harlem Family 1967, documenting the life of the Fontenelle family, who Parks photographed for Life magazine, and the science fiction-inspired Robert Pruitt: Women. Three artists in residence present their works each year. The gift shop is small but packs a lot of punch; don't miss its fantastic collection of coffee table books.
