Expanding the Walls: Making Connections Between Photography, History and Community is an annual, eight-month program in which New York high school students explore history and community through photography. Since the program’s founding in 2001, the James VanDerZee (1886–1983) archives—housed at The Studio Museum in Harlem—have been the primary catalyst for the students’ critical reflections on the representation of culture and community. Now in its twelfth year, the program and exhibition continue to be impassioned considerations of VanDerZee’s timeless themes, and testaments to the Studio Museum’s commitment to young, emerging artists.
