Studio Society

Studio Society is comprised of an extraordinary group of individuals who are dedicated to supporting Black art and culture. While participating in programs within the contemporary art world at large, Studio Society Members build meaningful relationships with fellow Members, as well as artists, curators and other leaders in our community and beyond. 

In appreciation of their support, Studio Society Members enjoy a year-round slate of exclusive programming. Past events include:

  • Curated tour of Harlem art spaces, including the inHarlem public art projects in Harlem's Historic Parks, the Harlem Hospital Murals, PS209, followed by a reception and artist talk at the Lewis Long Gallery
