The United States Artists organization recently awarded six fellowship grants for artistic excellence.

On December 7, the United States Artists (USA) organization awarded six $50,000 fellowship grants to artists who work in the crafts and traditional arts disciplines. A diverse group of winners included two ceramicists, two basket makers, a furniture designer and a beadworker. In conjunction with the announcement of the fellowship grant recipients, USA has introduced a new website for social networking and project fundraising.

The United States Artists organization was created to support the best artists in America by awarding 50 unrestricted grants per year. Private funding provides the foundation with the ability to help individual artists afford equipment, work space or training. The new website, USA Projects, makes it easy for site visitors to donate to artistic endeavors of their choice. For more information, please visit
