November/December Program Highlights
Help us celebrate International Human Rights Day tonight from 7â9 PM with a special workshop called Studio Squared: Portraiture and the Black, Male Body! The program will begin with a brief tour of Titus Kaphar: The Jerome Project, followed by a figure drawing class lead by teaching artist Mario Moore. Embracing new trends in portraiture and confronting the pervasive lack of African-American figure models in the classroom environment, this workshop celebrates the black, male body!
It's officially the holiday season and the Studio Museum Store has got you covered! Stop by and ask our fabulous staff for gift ideas for your family and friends! Also, don't forget about our annual Trunk Show Series, featuring crocheted pieces with a "funk aesthetic" by Xenobia Bailey!
A store favorite this season is the MZ Wallace x Glenn Ligon metro tote! Showcasing an iconic work of art by artist Glenn Ligion and 100% of proceeds directly supporting Education programs at the Studio Museum, this limited edition tote seamlessly merges fashion, art and philanthropy! Give the gift that gives back this holiday season! Shop in our Museum Store or online at mzwallace.com before they run out!
With your purchase of an MZ Wallace x Glenn Ligon tote, our youth and teen education programs can continue to thrive!
