The Studio Museum in Harlem is a contemporary art museum which is devoted to the work of African-Americans artists of the 19th and 20th centuries.  Founded in 1968, it was the first such museum in the United States.  Its scope includes exhibitions, artists-in-residence programs, education and public programming, a permanent collection, and archival and research facilities.

Since opening in a rented loft at Fifth Avenue and 125th Street, the Studio Museum has earned recognition for its role in promoting the works of artists of African descent. The Museum’s Artists-in-Residence program has supported over ninety graduates who have gone on to highly regarded careers[citation needed]. A wide variety of education and public programs have brought the African-American experience to the public by means of lectures, dialogues, panel discussions and performances, as well as interpretive programs, both on- and off-site, for students and teachers. The exhibitions program has also expanded the scope of art historical literature through the production of scholarly catalogues, brochures and pamphlets.
