About BRIO: Bronx Recognizes Its Own (BRIO) provides direct support to individual Bronx artists who create literary, media, visual, and performing works of art. 25 BRIO grants of $3,000 each are awarded to Bronx artists. BRIO award winners complete a one-time public service activity.

 

The awards are based solely on artistic excellence. Winners are selected by a panel of arts professionals representing the award disciplines.

BRIO awardees must complete a one-time public service activity to receive their complete cash award. Known as the ACE (Artists for Community Enrichment), this activity is an essential component for all BRIO recipients and must be performed within the one-year period of their award. The ACE provides artists with additional visibility and demonstrates to the community the wealth of artistic talent available in our borough.

Since its inception in 1989, BRIO has provided more than $950,000 to 335 artists. The selection of the awardees is based solely on the artistic excellence of the work submitted and judged anonymously by a panel of arts professionals (different panelists each year) from outside the Bronx and working in each respective field. Over its 25 years, BRIO has grown from ten annual awards of $1500 to 25 annual awards of $3,000. The Bronx has the unique distinction of being the only borough in New York City to have an ongoing fellowship award for artists.
