When Studio Museum opened in 1968, it was the first black fine-arts museum in the country, and it remains the place to go for historical insight into African-American art and the art of the African diaspora. Under the leadership of director Thelma Golden (formerly of the Whitney), this neighborhood favorite has evolved into the city’s most exciting showcase for contemporary African-American artists.

The Studio Museum Harlem features works solely by African-American artists and has tons of beautiful and thought-provoking artworks. The museum was a truly unique experience and provides an important platform to promote the work of African American artists. The only con was that some of the artworks were placed so high on the wall they were hard to view. But other than that, it's a must-visit for art lovers and culture vultures!
