United States Artists in Chicago announced its fellows for 2016 today. The 46 artists in fields ranging from visual arts to what the foundation calls “media” will receive $50,000 each.
“By supporting American artists, USA is supporting creativity, free expression, and a strong diverse culture. Our Fellows cross all ages, ethnicities, and stages in their careers,” United States Artists interim president and CEO Sunny Fischer said in a statement. “Each has a unique artistic voice that expands the creative environment of the United States. It is an honor to support these artists, contribute to their financial security, and to facilitate future works. We are encouraging the best of what American artists can achieve.”
