Since 1981, The Bronx Museum of the Arts has supported New York’s artist community through the AIM Fellowship, the museum’s flagship artist development program offering career management resources to guide emerging artists through the often opaque professional practices of the art world. 


Mentored by a distinguished faculty of industry experts, AIM Fellows engage in a four-month long series of intensive seminars and activities that aid artists in building sustainable studio practices while expanding peer and professional networks. Since its founding, AIM has provided pivotal career support to a diverse roster of over 1,200 of New York's most promising artists.


The AIM Fellowship and The Block Gallery receive support from 80 White Street, Jerome Foundation, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Miranda Family Fund, The New York Community Trust, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, William Talbott Hillman Foundation, The O'Grady Foundation, the Friends of AIM patron circle, and generous individuals.
