New de­vel­op­ments with United States Artists fel­low­ships; ArtBeat; Santa Fe Opera; and Santa Fe Sym­phony

On Nov. 16, United States Artists, now in its 10th year, an­nounced its fel­low­ship win­ners for 2016. The list in­cludes Santa Fe’s own Teri Greeves, a Kiowa artist known for the Pop-art aesthetic she brings to tra­di­tional Kiowa bead­work. She re­ceived the award in the tra­di­tional arts cat­e­gory. Al­bu­querque-based artist and com­poser Raven Cha­con, an en­rolled mem­ber of the Navajo Na­tion who is a mem­ber of the in­dige­nous art col­lec­tive Post­com­mod­ity, was hon­ored with an award in the cat­e­gory of mu­sic. Greeves and Cha­con each re­ceived USA Dis­tin­guished Fel­low awards. They join film­maker and au­thor Mi­randa July, ar­chi­tect Janet Echel­man, and oth­ers in re­ceiv­ing the fel­low­ships. Forty-five fel­lows in to­tal have been named for the 2016 award year, se­lected from a list of 400 and nom­i­nated by mem­bers of their com­mu­ni­ties. The $50,000 un­re­stricted fel­low­ships are de­signed to aid artists at var­i­ous stages of their ca­reers. Past re­cip­i­ents in­clude novelist An­nie Proulx and African Amer­i­can artist Kara Walker. United States Artists was cre­ated in 2006 with seed fund­ing from the Ford, Rock­e­feller, Ras­mu­son, and Pru­den­tial foun­da­tions to ad­dress a lack of un­re­stricted fund­ing avail­able to artists. The annual fel­low­ships go to in­no­va­tive artists work­ing the vis­ual and per­form­ing arts, ar­chi­tec­ture, crafts, dance, lit­er­a­ture, me­dia, mu­sic, and de­sign. — Michael Abatemarco
