THE FIELD, New York City, as fiscal sponsor for DAELA/KIMBERLY BARTOSIK, received $7,200 in support of the development and production of a new evening-length project, The Materiality of Impermanence. Bartosik has been presenting choreographic work since 1999. Her choreographic interests are based, in part, on the relationship of architectural space to the architecture of the body. Her work is greatly influenced by literature and cinema. The title of her new work is taken from an article on Tacita Dean, whose 16mm films have been a creative inspiration to Bartosik. As the title suggests, the project looks at a complex architectural structurethe homewhose essence is an accumulation of shifting meanings created from the human dramas and material belongings of the occupants. The concept of home has been radically altered in this era of epic foreclosures, as it has become permeated with the constant threat of loss. Bartosiks interest is in the ramifications of ones deep attachment, over time, to the idea of ones living space and the ways in which traces of ones home are materially erased once the interior life and inhabiting bodies are removed.

A commitment of $12,000 was made to VERY SPECIAL ARTS MINNESOTA, Minneapolis, Minnesota, in support of an artist recognition program and services to artists. Very Special Arts Minnesotas mission is to make the arts accessible to people with all types of disabilities throughout the state. In conjunction with Resources and Counseling for the Arts, the organization has worked to determine whether members of the disability community have the same opportunities as producers in the arts as do people without disabilities. An active support network and the allocation of financial resources were identified as needs. In 1996, the Jerome Foundation provided funding to conduct a competitive program which awarded grants to two visual artists, two literary artists and one performance artist. A second year of subsidy was awarded to continue this program of direct support and services to artists.

THE NEW MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART, New York City, received a two-year grant of $44,000 in support of its Public Access Program. The New Museum, founded in 1977, is a contemporary art museum with an international reputation. Dynamic solo exhibitions and landmark group shows define key moments in the development of contemporary art, reflect the global nature of art today and span a vast array of cultural activities and media. The Museum is guided by the conviction that contemporary art is a vital social force that extends beyond the art world into the broader culture. In March 1998, The New Museum launched its Public Access initiative (now called Media Lounge) in order to connect the work of emerging artists with a broad general public. Media Lounge is the first museum space in New York dedicated to new media. Designed by LOT/EK, a young cutting-edge architectural firm, Media Lounge presents digitally manipulated video works, experimental video and sound installations, computer generated projections, web-based and CD-ROM art, and wide range of new media events. Media Lounge seeks to establish new media as a vital artistic force for the 21st Century, explore how these works are presented and interpreted, provide visibility for the new media community within a well known visual arts organization, and encourage emerging artists working in this area. After years of funding for the On View program, the Jerome Foundation shifted its funding to Media Lounge because these exhibitions, often featuring the works of emerging artists, are designed to explore new paradigms of visitor interaction by reducing some of the barriers between contemporary art and museum visitors. This program encourages under-recognized and emerging artists to alter radically the traditional exhibition framework.
