NEA 1994 Visual Arts Organizations Grants

The Visual Arts Program of the National Endowment for the Arts recently announced grant recipients in its organizations and periodicals category for fiscal year 1994. This year is the second in which the periodicals were announced in the same category with visual arts organizations, and reviewed by the same 12-person peer panel. What follows in this issue is the first half of this list. The second half of the list will appear in the October 1994 issue.

Organizations may apply in this category if they have been created for artists and assure them an integral role in organizational policy development and programming, promote interaction and dialogue between artists and the public, and encourage and support contemporary art of high aesthetic quality.

The 1994 panel awarded grants totalling $1.9 million to 119 organizations and periodicals. Last year's VAO panel awarded $2 million to 143 organizations and periodicals. The following panel reviewed this year's applications:

Tom Borrup (arts administrator and consultant, Minneapolis, MN); Robert Buitron (visual artist and freelance curator, Chicago, IL); Caroline Huber (arts administrator and curator, Houston, TX); Milena Kalinovska (museum director and curator, Boston, MA); Elaine King (museum director, curator, and art historian, Cinncinnati, OH); Arturo Lindsay (visual artist, educator and scholar, Atlanta, GA); Judy Moran (visual artist, arts administrator, and consultant, San Francisco, CA); Patsy Ong (Chinese interpreter and translator, New York, NY); Lari Pittman (visual artist, Los Angeles, CA); Ree Schonlau (arts administrator and curator, Omaha, NE); Pablo Schugurensky (visual artist and arts administrator, Olympia, WA); Reagan Upshaw (art critic, editor, and arts administrator, New York, NY).
