The Studio Museum of Harlem


If you read my previous post, you know that I went to the Studio Museum of Harlem this past weekend for some inspiration and relaxation. I love Studio Museum for a multitude of reasons. First, it's dedicated to Black art. Second, it's run by the fabulous Thelma Golden (she gives me serious #LifeGoals). Third, but not last, one of its fundamental practices is nurturing young artists of color. It's amazing what this small museum has managed to do with their space. It's incredible and is a constant reminder that there are no limitations on what I can do.

The photos above are from a few of their summer exhibitions (Regarding the Figure, Jamel Shabazz Crossing 125th Street, and Rico Gaston Icons). I loved the range of mediums and how all of my favorite artists were in the same room. Lorna Simpson, Lorraine O'Grady, Carrie Mae Weems, Lynette Yiadom Boakye, Barkley Hendricks, etc. I was even introduced to a few new artist I would like to keep my eyes on, Lev. T Mills, for example.
