United States Artists
United States Artists celebrates the breadth of American artistic practices by providing $50,000 unrestricted awards directly to artists. We honor innovative, accomplished artists at all stages of their careers, who are nominated by their peers and field experts for their fresh perspectives, unique artistic vision, and impact on their field in the following disciplines: Architecture & Design, Crafts, Dance, Literature, Media, Music, Theater & Performance, Traditional Arts and Visual Arts. Since our inception in 2006, we have awarded over 400 artists with almost $20 million in support through our signature Fellowship program.
Congrats to USA Fellows Almudena Carracedo, Mel Chin, Sean Shepherd, Kukuli Velarde, and George Lewis for winning Guggenheim Fellowships!
