Individual Artist Initiative

Jung In Kim "being special", 23x30 inch, acrylic & pencil drawing on watercolor paper,Feb.09

The Individual Artist Initiative is intended to invigorate the professional careers of artists. The IAI is awarded annually by the Queens Council on the Arts to ten emerging Queens artists in any discipline (performing arts, media arts, literary arts or visual arts) as a fully-financed consultancy with an established professional development specialist. Recipients complete a specific professional development goal with the guidance of the consultant. Participants also receive mentoring through the community of previous IAI recipients, as well as access to intimate professional development workshops coordinated by Queens Council on the Arts.
This year i was one of the lucky recipients of this unique opportunity. I feel honored to be included in such a talented group of artists: Jung In Kim, Michelle Provenzano, ST Woolf, Monica Velez, Janell O'Rourke, Norma Greenwood and Vivian Fung.
