Longwood Arts Project, the Contemporary Art Center of the Bronx Council on the Arts, presented the exhibition BX 1: The Second Bronx Artist Biennial showcasing the 2006 and 2007 winners of BCA's Bronx Recognizes Its Own (BRIO) during the summer of 2007.
BRIO (Bronx Recognizes Its Own) continues to provide support for artistic development of individuals creating works of literary, media, performing, and visual arts in the Bronx. A minimum of 25 BRIO grants of $3,000 each are awarded to individual artists residing in the Bronx.
BRIO award winners must complete a one-time public service activity (ACE) to receive their complete award. The selection for awards is based solely on artistic excellence and is decided on by a panel of professional artists representing the various disciplines. Only artists living in the Bronx are eligible to apply for BRIO.
