POSTED ON: March 12, 2021
A feature story in the March 2021 issue of Harper’s BAZAAR includes interviews with School of Art alumnae Leslie Hewitt A'00 and Firelei Báez A'04 about the Studio Museum in Harlem and how it helped reshape American art history. Hewitt, who is also currently an associate professor in the School of Art, participated in the Studio Museum’s artist-in-residence program, which gives emerging Black and Afro-Latinx artists an opportunity to develop their practice, in 2007-08 and Báez exhibited work as part of the Studio Museum's InHarlem program, which features collaborations with other Harlem neighborhood institutions. For her 2018 exhibition at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Báez featured women whose legacies are preserved and maintained by the Schomburg Center's archives.
