Few museums are as committed to supporting artists as The Studio Museum in Harlem. Since opening in 1968, the Studio Museum has maintained its founding mission of supporting artists of African descent through its famed residency program and other initiatives. Now, as the museum begins construction on its new home, artists are giving back by offering their works in Sotheby’s May auctions of contemporary art. Among the 42 artists donating works are Mark Bradford, Chris Ofili, Xaviera Simmons, Lorna Simpson and Kehinde Wiley.
