My name is Elizabeth Ferrer and for 14 years I’ve served as Chief Curator of BRIC’s Contemporary Art Gallery. I’m writing to you – a BRIC supporter – to tell you about something I’m very excited about: in 2023, BRIC will host our first-ever Triennial dedicated to the work of disabled artists.
For decades, BRIC has served as a creative catalyst for artists from all walks of life. BRIClab, our multidisciplinary residency program created to advance opportunities for visual artists, performers, and media makers, is key to that work.
BRIC is proud to announce that with support from the New York Community Trust, we are able to provide in-kind media production support and training to ten New York City-based arts and cultural organizations. The $200,000 grant will allow these organizations to capture and distribute digital content, as well as build internal media capacity toward long-term sustainability.
I hope this holiday season finds you well. If we haven’t met, my name is Robin Jenkins and I have the honor of serving as BRIC’s Interim President.
During my time with all of you at BRIC, I’m committed to acting as a bridge to the next permanent leader of our organization -- and to taking care of our community during this crucial time.
Since coming into this role, I’ve spent the past two months meeting countless artists, media makers, and cultural innovators who work with BRIC. I’ve seen firsthand how BRIC makers leverage their voice and craft to not only speak their truth to current cultural moments, but also strive to connect their personal narratives to history while helping us all imagine a better future. It really is phenomenal and breathtaking work.
Happy Fall! My name is Robin Jenkins, and I recently joined BRIC as the organization’s Interim President. I’m reaching out to say “hello” and extend my sincerest thanks for your support of BRIC and the communities that we serve...
