The museum also mixed in pieces from the its permanent collection by young artists like Adam Pendleton (who guided a tour I took at the Museo Del Barrio) who had a mural in the museum courtyard as well as a drawing hung just inside the museum lobby as part of a collections exhibit.
While you may have missed this show, don't be dismayed. There will be a new exhibit up and running July 14th. The exhibit-to-come will again have temporary and permanent pieces mixed together, and looks like it will be another winner (Studio Museum Future Exhibits).
This is a great little museum definitely worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood. They had the current curator of the Museum of Art and Design, MAD as their President and the legacy of this connection and professionalism shows. Also, if you are a fan of Sheila Bridges' African-American toile (also displayed at MAD), you can get some bedding here at the museum gift shop.
