Marketing Coordinator - Studio Museum in Harlem

The Studio Museum in Harlem is the nexus for artists of African descent locally, nationally and internationally and for work that has been inspired and influenced by black culture. It is a site for the dynamic exchange of ideas about art and society. 

The Studio Museum in Harlem was founded in 1968 by a diverse group of artists, community activists and philanthropists who envisioned a new kind of museum that not only displays artwork but also supports artists and arts education. In celebration of its 50th anniversary in 2018, the Museum has bolstered its programming and fundraising to honor the occasion and is actively working on the institution’s vital next chapter, which includes utilizing community spaces and resources through the inHarlem initiative, as the Studio Museum awaits its new home to be built on its current site.
