Comment by AB: A rare opportunity to see an extensive selection of art from the permanent collection of The Studio Museum in Harlem. The show takes up two full floors and includes works of art dating from the 1920s to the present. The exhibition runs through April 14. Definitely worth a visit. Here's a tantalizing taste of what you'll see...
