Our Fellow Friends

Yesterday, the 50 USA Fellows for 2011 were announced and we are proud to say we have worked with six of them (That’s 12%!)

Once a year, the philanthropic organization United States Artists selects 50 exceptional artists as fellows, giving them $50,000 each. Fellows are nominated by an anonymous group, which changes each year, consisting of individuals who are well versed in the arts and live throughout the United States. Prizes are awarded to artists in Architecture & Design, Crafts & Traditional Arts, Dance, Literature, Media, Music, Theater Arts, and Visual Arts.

According to the official USA website, artists must have: “Expert artistic skills, Artistic education or training (formal or informal), A history of deriving income from those skills, A history of active engagement in creating artwork and presenting it to the public.”

Are you familiar with any of our friends?!
