Studio Museum 127 Pops-Up inHarlem



Studio Museum in Harlem Pop-Up located at 429 West 127th Street

While we wait for The Studio Museum in Harlem to complete renovation, the Museum has been busy ‘outside its walls’ in a number of location’s inHarlem.  We went to visit the new Studio Museum Harlem 127, a temporary exhibition space located at 429 West 127th Street, to view a current exhibition ~ a beautiful selection of photographs from the Museum collection.

The new pop-up space is a large, bright and airy room, filled with familiar Harlem images.

We were delighted to see this lovely photograph (above, left) of the renowned musician, Marjorie Eliot who can often be found at a piano in a local park or on the grounds of Morris Jumel Mansion when she’s not performing at The Parlor.
