From Our Collection to Yours
Studio Store champions artists, entrepreneurs, and makers who create unique and artistically-thoughtful products and pieces.
Working with the Studio Museum in Harlem's Curatorial Department, Studio Store finds inspiration in the Museum’s collection, the Harlem community, and contemporary artists and makers.
The Store’s quarterly selection process includes identifying Black-owned or operated, Harlem-based, or Studio Museum-adjacent businesses that create products surrounding Black culture, history, and art. Once identified, products are chosen based on a spectrum of relevance, presence of intentional design, standout illustration, and nuanced storytelling.
The following brands are included in Studio Store’s current offerings: Actually Curious, All Very Goods, Aziza Handcrafted, Brown Toy Box, Dorcas Creates, Harlem Candle Co., L’Enchanteur, Liberated Young, Melody Ehsani, Nappy Head Club, Sheila Bridges Design, The Black School, UNWRP, and YAM.
Studio Store also carries and/or has carried collaborations with artists including Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Kwame Brathwaite, Jordan Casteel, Elizabeth Colomba, Eldzier Cortor, Barkley L. Hendricks, Norman Lewis, Wardell Milan, Lorna Simpson, Frank Stewart. Alma Thomas, Stephanie Weaver, Stanley Whitney, and Brenna Youngblood.
Born out of an urgent need amid the political, social, and cultural ferment of the late 1960s, the Studio Museum in Harlem was founded in 1968 by a diverse group of artists, community activists, and philanthropists who came together to address the near-complete exclusion of artists of African descent from mainstream museums, commercial art galleries, academic institutions, and scholarly publications.
The Studio Museum is currently constructing the first building in its history created expressly for the needs of the institution and its communities. The new building occupies the site on West 125th Street on which the Studio Museum had been operating since 1982.
