WASHINGTON—National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Jane Chu has approved more than $82 million to fund local arts projects across the country in the NEA’s second major funding announcement for fiscal year 2017. Included in this announcement is an Art Works award of $30,000 to the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) to support the exhibition REVIVAL. The NEA received 1,728 Art Works applications and will make 1,029 grants ranging from $10,000 to $100,000.

“The arts reflect the vision, energy and talent of America’s artists and arts organizations,” said NEA Chairman Jane Chu. “The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support organizations such as the National Museum of Women in the Arts, in serving their communities by providing excellent and accessible arts experiences.”

“NEA grants allow museums to be recognized for their work as trusted public institutions and are a sign that the museum is succeeding in its mission to champion women through the arts,” said NMWA Director Susan Fisher Sterling. “NEA’s generous support of our 30th anniversary exhibition REVIVAL also allows us to leverage this grant when approaching other funders to support key exhibitions and programs.”
