Enjoy an interactive and informative tour of When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South, an exhibition that queries the category of âoutsiderâ art in relation to contemporary art and black life. Situating itself within current art historical and political debates, the exhibition considers work by self-taught, spiritually inspired and incarcerated artists, alongside other projects based in performance, socially engaged practice and the archive, as well as painting, drawing, sculpture and assemblage, that make insistent reference to place.
Artist Henry Ray Clark was a folk artist that developed a characteristic drawing style featuring detailed patterns and line work. Take a look at his work featured in When the Stars Begin to Fall, then explore pattern, shape and line to construct a family crest, a work of art that reflects something special about your family.
Enjoy an interactive and informative tour of Glenn Kaino 19.83, Los Angeles-based artist Glenn Kaino debuts two recent artworks; Bridge (2013), a sculpture comprised of several gold painted casts of Tommie Smith's arm and 19.83 (2013), a three-level platform reminiscent of the one used to honor the top competitors at the Olympics.
Artist Glenn Kaino is continually inspired by American athlete and Olympian, Tommie Smith, with whom he collaborates for the Glenn Kaino: 19.83 installations.

At The Studio Museum in Harlem, a new season means new discoveries.
Every Sunday, Sasha and her father come to our free workshops to learn something new about artâand each other. The Studio Museum brings art alive. Here, exhibitions like our current When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South do more than bring unique, world-class artwork into our galleriesâ they inspire hundreds of performances, talks with artists, tours and workshops every year. And they inspire the people that come through our doors, across generations.
