BRONX, NEW YORK.-The Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) Program marks the Museum’s ongoing commitment to support artists by providing training, encouragement, and a venue for exhibition. A cornerstone program, AIM was established to realize the Museum’s goal of providing professional opportunities to emerging artists in the metropolitan area. The program is annually enhanced by a broad cross-section of participating artists. It is also enriched by guest speakers: artists, accountants, collectors, critics, curators, dealers, and lawyers who provide information, instruction, and professional guidance by addressing practical areas of concern to artists, such as curatorial practice, copyright law, exhibition and public art opportunities, gallery representation, grants writing, income taxes, and marketing.
This free seminar program is offered in the fall and the spring, and meets for 12 weeks on Tuesday evenings, 6 - 8 p.m. Enrollment is limited to 18 artists per semester. The program culminates with an annual group exhibition and accompanying catalogue.
