United States Artists
Artist in Los Angeles, CA
US Artists (USA) is a grant-making, artist-advocacy organization committed to supporting America's best artists working across diverse disciplines. After decades of dwindling public support, at USA, artists now have a home where they may find significant private funding unrestricted cash grants to ignite the creativity that makes this country great. In an act of unprecedented private investment in personal artists and the creative potential of America, USA launched in September 2005 with $22 million in seed funding offered by a coalition of leading foundations, Rockefeller, Prudential, and Rasmuson. This initial investment allows our organization to pilot the USA Fellows program, awarding unrestricted $50, 000 grants to fifty artists each year.
