United States Artists (USA) announced today their list of 2016 fellows, including Shirin Neshat, Stanley Whitney, Miranda July, and Jacolby Satterwhite. Each of the 46 selected artists working in music, theater, visual art, dance, literature, and beyond will receive a no-strings-attached award of $50,000. This year the organization is also celebrating its 10th anniversary—with $22 million in grants given to 450 artists to date—and a new $20 million operational endowment from the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the James L.
