Provenance:
Donated 1996 by the NEA, Visual Arts Program via Michael Faubion, Director. The actual applications relating to the supporting material are housed in the National Archives. After ca. 1990, the NEA began returning supporting documentation to the applicants, hence, no records from the 1990s are included, although grants were awarded in the Visual Artists Organizations category until 1995. Ca. 80 linear ft. of exhibition catalogs and monographs received from the NEA along with the Visual Arts Program records were transferred to the Library of the National Museum of American Art.
