A.I.R. Fellowship Program
The A.I.R. Fellowship Program was established in 1993 by former NY artist member, Stephanie Bernheim in order to support underrepresented and emerging self-identified women artists in New York City. Each year, six artists are awarded a year-long fellowship to develop and exhibit a project at A.I.R.
In the last 24 years more than 86 artists have had the opportunity to have their first solo exhibition in New York City with the support of the A.I.R. community. This program encourages artistic experimentation and rigor by providing a space where feminist historical precedence and inter-generational dialogue are at the forefront. Essential for this process are a series of professional development workshops, the close collaboration with an A.I.R. artist-mentor, scheduled studio visits through the year- including one with the panelists, and the participation in the Unforgettables Reading/Working Group.
