The Artist in the Marketplace Program
Every year a panel of five arts professionals, assembled by the Bronx Museum, selects thirty-six artists to participate in the AIM program. The thirteen AIM sessions are led by a faculty of specialists and address areas of practical concern to artists including: career management and gallery representation; exhibition and public art opportunities; grant writing, copyright law and contracts, and marketing. There are two groups: winter (January through March) and spring (April through June).The sessions are held at the Bronx Museum and off-site locations on Tuesdays from 6 to 8 pm and occasionally on Saturdays from 3-5 pm. Participating artists are encouraged to build their networks through the program's collaborative structure. AIM culminates with a biennial exhibition organized by a team of guest curators and an accompanying catalogue.
To provide networking opportunities to emerging artists residing in the New York metropolitan area and to introduce their work to a greater audience.
The museum is centrally located in the Bronx, a borough of New York City.
