Last Day!: A Trip to The Studio Museum in Harlem

To celebrate the last day of the Teen Docent Program, the students visited the Studio Museum in Harlem for a guided tour of their exhibition When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South. The exhibition includes both academic and folk art and gave the teens the opportunity to view and discuss work by artists in the American Folk Art Museum’s collection that has not been on view this year. Highlights included art by J.B. Murray and Marie “Big Mama” Roseman. The students did a wonderful job expressing themselves through observation and interpretation, as they have all year. They are a fantastic, inspiring group of young people and will be missed!
