For its ongoing Harlem Postcards project, the Studio Museum in Harlem invites artists of various backgrounds to create an image reflecting on the community from any angle—politically, creatively, historically, etc. For the current series, Devin Troy Strother conjured those legendary basketball tricksters the Harlem Globetrotters. The postcard, along with others by Noel Anderson, Cheryl Donegan, and Mariamma Kambon, is available for free in the museum’s lobby. Or, if you must share it right now, you can e-mail it directly from the museum’s website. Nice way to say Hoopy Birthday. (Or hoops I did It again?)
