THE BRONX MUSEUM OF THE ARTS, Bronx, New York, received $18,000 in support of the Artist in the Marketplace Program (AIM) and an accompanying Biennial exhibition and catalog. The Museum presents new ideas and voices in a larger, global context and makes contemporary art both a relevant and indespensible experience for culturally diverse Bronx K-12 students, families, community residents, artists, art patrons, and museum visitors. It presents exhibitions that feature works by diverse and under-represented artists on themes that explore the intersections between popular culture and contemporary art. AIM provides opportunities for emerging artists who have yet to establish strong career roots. Now entering its 31st year, AIM has helped 1,080 artists engage with leading art professionals through seminar sessions and studio visits. AIM artists are selected via an open call and expert panel review. The artists are diverse in age, experience, education, and nationality. AIM invests in the careers of 36 artists each year, and maintains ties with alumni as they move forward in their professions. Each group of 18 artists attends 12 weekly seminars. A culminating Biennial exhibition features works by AIM artists

INTERMEDIA ARTS MINNESOTA, Minneapolis, received $18,000 in support of artists works within the HomeWork Project. A key component in Intermedias development of a new home was to use as much of the construction budget as possible to pay artists to make essential elements of the building, thereby increasing artist ownership of the building and achieving a design which was strengthened by the active engagement of creative ideas. A call for proposals from artists was put forth by a design team, which received nearly 100 proposals from 29 artists and teams of artists. Eleven projects were identified. The first grouping of those projects was implemented during the last year and a half with funding from Jerome Foundation and other sources.
