We're excited to share a rich fall program with our audiences, beginning with the announcement of "Thomas J. Price: Witness", opening October 2 in Harlem's Marcus Garvey Park.

"Thomas J. Price: Witness" is the artist's first solo US museum presentation. The outdoor installation will open to the public as part of the Studio Museum's ongoing inHarlem initiative.

The nine-foot bronze figure, titled "The Distance Within" (2021), depicts a young Black man looking down at his cell phone. The grand size of the sculpture celebrates a familiar form rarely monumentalized within a public setting and explores blackness and Black masculinity as it relates to presence, movement, and freedom.

Featured in the Studio Museum Store is jewelry by Coreen Simpson.

"When I was growing up in Brooklyn I remember seeing a Black man on Pacific street wearing an orange suit and everybody stopped. I will never forget that. He looked like a God. This was in the 50s. That was a transcendent moment for me. He seemed to be moving in slow motion and it just blew my mind. Clothes and jewelry have always been very important to me in observance of how people present themselves because that's empowerment." —Coreen Simpson

"From my perch in the studios, I often spent time looking out at the Adam Clayton Powell courtyard ... there was one man who often caught my eye. He would be in the courtyard across the street clearly having the time of his life dancing and flying kites. Our initial introduction was fairly brief. I explained my role as an artist in residence at The Studio Museum in Harlem and the project I was beginning to develop around capturing the community and sharing that with a broader museum audience. He shared his desire to bring the joy of flying kites to families—provide an activity and happiness accessible to everyone. I took a series of photographs where Kevin the Kiteman would place himself in various places around the courtyard. We were both focused on highlighting his bike and kites, his tools for social engagement. I left having met someone who became a staple of my day-to-day life in Harlem."
—Jordan Casteel, 2018

"Kevin the Kiteman" by Jordan Casteel (2015–16 Artist in Residence) is on view in "Black Refractions" at Frye Art Museum in Seattle, WA, through August 15, 2021.

Happy July 4th from the Studio Museum!

A centennial after the United States announced its independence from Great Britain, the artist Clementine Hunter was born. Hunter worked for most of her life on the Melrose Plantation in Louisiana, one of the largest plantations in the United States built by and for free Blacks.

The artist is known for depicting everyday moments in and around the plantation, and illustrating the beauty, complexities, and traditions of independent Black life in the American South during the twentieth century.

Join the Studio Museum as we celebrate and commemorate Juneteenth!

As people across the country gain a broader understanding of the importance, joy, and complexity of the Juneteenth holiday and incorporate it into their national identity, it remains deeply meaningful to reflect on the legacy and history of this annual celebration.

On June 19, 1865, Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, to inform enslaved African Americans that they were free—over two years after the Emancipation Proclamation came into effect under President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863. For over 150 years, Black Americans have gathered on June 19th to honor and remember the emancipation of the last remaining enslaved African Americans in the United States.

Juneteenth is a marker of the country's second independence day. Today, we celebrate our freedom, commemorate our ancestors, and deepen our understanding of a holiday that is a public declaration of Black joy, resilience, and humanity.

A suite of resources can be found on our website to help inform, engage, and create on this Juneteenth! Visit the Studio Museum's homepage https://bit.ly/3qaot7k ❤️
