The Studio Museum in Harlem: Uptown Arts


Harlem is famous as a center for the arts. To show your kids the vibrant work of African and African-American artists, set your sights on Target Free Sundays at the Studio Museum in Harlem. Step in and you’ll see modern gallery spaces packed with creativity. Maybe you’ll catch historic photos from the Harlem Renaissance, or maybe it’ll be contemporary sculpture, video, or comic book art. Whatever you check out, your little ones will doubtless be inspired to try it themselves. Kids will thrill to the weekly “Hands On” workshops, where they can create their own masks, or storybooks, or a found-object house. You’ll love seeing how open they are to art, and how quickly they discover new ways of expressing themselves. You’ll also love taking home a hanging sculpture or a family crest made by your own up-and-coming artist. There’s more on offer on Sundays, and you may encounter a poetry slam, live music, or a gallery tour tailored to inform and entertain both you and your kids. Every program is different, should you want to turn this into a weekly family outing.
