Professional Development Opportunity for Emerging Artists

So as to not reinvent the wheel, I am simply cutting and pasting the following announcement from Bronx Museum of the Arts:

The Bronx Museum of the Arts is now accepting applications for its 2009-10 Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) Program. Applications will only be accepted on-line. Submissions by mail will not be accepted. Please click here to apply.

For more information about how to apply to the AIM program please refer to the guidelines PDF.

Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) marks The Bronx Museum of the Arts' ongoing commitment to provide professional development opportunities to emerging artists in the greater New York metropolitan area. AIM comprises a thirteen-week seminar program offered annually in the fall and the spring. Classes meet at The Bronx Museum of the Arts, and other off-site locations, on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. Enrollment is limited to 18 artists per session. The program culminates with an annual group exhibition and accompanying publication.

AIM sessions provide information, instruction, and professional guidance by addressing areas of practical concern to artists, such as curatorial practice, copyright law, exhibition and public art opportunities, gallery representation, grants writing, income taxes, and marketing. A core set of workshops is annually enhanced by a number of guest speakers including artists, critics, curators, dealers, and lawyers.
