Sixty Bold Artists Shaping Today.
At a moment of constant change, artists continue to inspire curiosity, empathy, and action toward building a more honest and just world. They help us envision new futures and show us that art-making of all kinds, and their cross-pollination, is critical to moving our culture forward.
This year, 60 artists—spanning every career stage and hailing from 22 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico—will each receive a $50,000 unrestricted cash award. USA Fellowships recognize artists for both their bold artistic vision and their contributions to the field, and in receiving this award they decide how to best support their lives.
