Arrangement:

Historical Note:
In September 1965, President Lyndon Johnson signed legislation creating the National Endowment for the Arts. The agency's Visual Artists' Fellowship Program was launched in 1967 and embraced living American artists. Through grants or participation on review panels, the NEA's program reached many of the most influential and critically acclaimed artists of the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. Not infrequently, fellowships were awarded early in a career, providing a boost of cash and recognition at a key moment in the evolution of an artist's work.
Related Materials:
The original grant application files that accompanied these visual submissions were transferred from NEA offices to the National Archives and were part of Record Group 288 (identifier 598883). Per federal government record disposition schedules, the files were disposed of in 2014, twenty-five years after the program closed.
Provenance:
Transfer from the National Endowment for the Arts, 1997.
Restrictions:
The collection is open for research. Contact Photograph Archives, Smithsonian American Art Museum. Advance appointments are required.

Copyright restrictions apply.
