To invest in America's finest artists and illuminate the value of artists to society
The Los Angeles-based United States Artists was founded with a mission to invest in America's finest artists and illuminate their value to society.
Through the USA Fellows program, which annually awards 50 unrestricted grants of $50,000 to outstanding performing, visual, media, and literary artists across the country, USA has put $15 million in the hands of artists in just six years. Its newest program, USA Projects, is an online community where anyone can discover original projects from today's most innovative artists and make tax-deductible donations to support that work.
Past recipients of USA Fellowships include visual artists Kara Walker and Catherine Opie, cartoonist Chris Ware, designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy (of Rodarte), performing artist Meredith Monk, ballet dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, choreographer Bill T. Jones, and the writer Sapphire.
