The NEA Supports Glasstire!

by Paula Newton June 14, 2017

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has approved a grant of $20,000 to support Glasstire in its second round of funding for FY 2017. That’s great news for Texas artists, arts writers, and visiting lecturers.

In this round, the NEA has approved 1,195 grants totaling $82.06 million, including 54 grants in Texas with a total dollar amount of $2,510,600. Other Texan grantees include:

Big Medium, Austin, $20,000
K Space, Corpus Christi, $10,000
The Stanlee and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at UTEP, $30,000
DiverseWorks, $25,000
Houston Arts Alliance’s Folklife + Traditional Arts Program, $40,000
Blaffer Art Museum, Houston, $25,000
Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts at UH, $25,000
Blue Star Contemporary, San Antonio, $20,000
Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, San Antonio, $40,000
San Antonio Museum of Art, $25,000
(For the full list, go here.)

The NEA sent out a template for those “recommended” for a grant, since it could “be confusing for media and others who are following your organization.” (Is this Trump era caution?) Its Office of Public Affairs recommends this language: “The NEA Chairman has approved [name of organization] for a grant in the amount of [$0.00]. We look forward to working with the NEA to finalize the grant paperwork and are appreciative of the agency’s support for this project.”
