Artists in Motion looks at the lives of four artists as they develop and share their struggles, inspirations, and creative work. The featured artists include: Claudia Acuña, vocalist, The Jazz Gallery; Tania Bruguera, performance artist, Creative Time; Fran Romo, dancer, Gallim Dance; and Jose Zayas, director, Spanish Theatre Repertory Company.

The 2011 annual review includes a letter from RBF’s president, Stephen Heintz, highlighting the Fund’s support of the creative process and institutions in New York City through the Charles E. Culpeper arts and culture grants. Two companion videos were also produced: Artists in Motion which glimpses into the lives of four artists as they develop their work, and A Pivotal Role: Arts in New York City, which goes behind the scenes with four grantee organizations.

A Pivotal Role: Arts in New York City includes interviews with Andrea Miller, artistic director at Gallim Dance; Anne Pasternak, president and artistic director of Creative Time; and Deborah Steinglass, executive director of The Jazz Gallery. The trio discuss the realities they face as they support artists and the creative process.
