Studio Museum in Harlem
Log Number: MH-245933-OMS-20
The Studio Museum in Harlem will launch a two-year inventory project to uncover, document, and increase accessibility to its collections. The museum's collections include over 2,500 works by over 800 artists working in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, photography, video, installation, and performance. The museum will increase its curatorial capacity by hiring a dedicated collections database administrator, who will work with collections staff, art handlers, and a consultant to implement project activities. Concurrent with the collections inventory, the project team will capture images of all objects and prepare for the first full appraisal of the collection in over a decade. The completed inventory will provide the context necessary to more efficiently and safely store works as the museum prepares for the opening exhibition in its new facility.
