The Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program was established in the early 1980s with the goal to provide networking opportunities to emerging artists residing in the New York metropolitan area and to introduce their work to a greater audience.

Every year a panel of five arts professionals, assembled by the Bronx Museum, selects thirty-six artists to participate in the AIM program. The thirteen   AIM sessions are led by a faculty of specialists and address areas of practical concern to artists including: career management and gallery representation; exhibition and public art opportunities; grant writing, copyright law and contracts, and marketing. There are two groups: winter (January through March) and spring (April through June).The sessions are held at the Bronx Museum and off-site locations on Tuesdays from 6 to 8 pm and occasionally on Saturdays from 3-5 pm. Participating artists are encouraged to build their networks through the program's collaborative structure.

AIM culminates with a biennial exhibition organized by a team of guest curators and an accompanying catalogue.
