For the first time since its inception in 1980, the Bronx Museum is expanding its artist training program by launching a dedicated resource hub featuring private workspaces, exhibition facilities, meeting rooms, and career management resources to support the ongoing creative and professional advancement of program alumni. Starting in 2019, the 4,500 sq-ft space at 80 White Street will host a regular series of programs including exhibitions, performances, artist talks, and workshops inviting the public to engage with resident artists and the AIM community. AIM’s expansion reinforces the Bronx Museum’s mission to champion under-recognized voices and support innovative cultural production to ensure that New York’s diverse creative community continues to thrive.
