The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) has an Immigrant Artist Program (IAP). The goal of the program is to "connect artists with services and resources to foster their creative careers, gain support and exposure for their work, and integrate into the cultural world of New York and beyond while upholding their distinct identities."
Despite coming out of the NYFA, it's not NY-limited. The IAP will be heading to Detroit in March where there will be "two weekend boot camps, one-on-one mentoring, informal gatherings and follow-up consultations."
Check out the IAP Newsletter which features different immigrant artists, like Ioan Florea pictured above, who developed his own "custom 3D image fused resin and pigment transfer on canvas" and uses "liquid metal paint" that he formulates!
