Thelma Golden-Living Her Life Like It's Golden


You know when people ask you what you want to be when you grow up and you might say a doctor, a lawyer, a businessperson, a teacher, an engineer, etc. These are all great professions, but there are many other professions that we as young don’t know about and because of this, we never dream about becoming other kinds of people.
I say of all this to introduce you to Thelma Golden, a tiny giant of a lady. She is the Director and Chief Curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem. If you go to the Kehinde Wiley exhibition I told you about( scroll down), you might meet her.
She’s a curator of a museum. She gets to meet artists, fall in love with their work, and present the work to the public-to us - is a way she determines will excite us about the art. Check out this short video of her describing what she does. We can grow up to be just as fabulous. Click on the link below and then click on her photo/name.
