3-Day Weekend at BxMA

We hope everyone stayed safe during Hurricane Irene. This was the third straight Sunday  that it's rained --spoiling your trip to the Bronx Museum. This weekend, Saturday, Sunday, (11-6pm) & Labor Day, (11-4pm) we will be open! --not to mention Thursday and Friday (Free Admission on Friday).

This will be your last chance to view the AIM Biennial exhibition featuring 72 young artists who have completed BxMA's Artist in the Marketplace program. And, coincidentally (maybe, maybe not) next Monday is also the deadline for artists to submit an AIM application to the next pro-dev workshop cycle.

Besides the AIM application deadline and AIM Biennial closing on September 5; on Friday September 9, 6-midnight the Museum will collaborate with
MBSCC & Vishiva Real Management to present "Urban Nights of Cinema, Music, & Fashion" --an eclectic showcase of film, live music, and art at the Albert Goodman House. Purchase Tickets:

On Friday, September 16, 6-8pm the Museum will host a symposium workshop on "Travel to Cuba"  the new White House Policy permitting licensed travel to Cuba by U.S. citizens for people-to-people and broad educational purposes. Free event, please RSVP on Facebook

AIM: Artist Professional-Development Program

AIM 32 Now Accepting Applications!
Deadline: Monday, September 5, 2011

The Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program at The Bronx Museum of the Arts was established in 1980 with the goals of providing networking opportunities for emerging artists residing in the New York metropolitan area and of introducing their work to a greater audience.

AIM is structured as a “collaborative residency” in which participants work directly with established artists, collectors, art critics, curators, dealers, lawyers, and other art world professionals. The 13-week seminar is offered annually to 36 participants, culminating with a biennial exhibition of the participants’ work in June 2013. AIM sessions provide information, instruction, and professional guidance by addressing areas of practical concern to artists, among them curatorial practice, copyright law, exhibition and public art opportunities, gallery representation, grant writing, and marketing. Sessions take place on Tuesdays from 6-8 pm at The Bronx Museum of the Arts and off-site locations.

Among past participants in the AIM program are Glenn Ligon—who was one of the early AIM artists and whose work was first exhibited at the Bronx Museum—and Polly Apfelbaum, Rina Banerjee, Amy Cutler, Anton Vidokle, and Pheobe Washburn.
