New York Foundation for the Arts
The New York Foundation for the Arts’ mission is to empower artists at critical stages in their creative lives. NYFA’s programs have always been a beacon of support and encouragement for artists. Now more than ever, NYFA’s programs and services are crucial to the survival of the arts community.
While we can’t quite call this the New York Foundation for the Arts Hall of Fame, we are proud to present the following renowned artists — all of them at one time NYFA supported, and most in their up and coming years, long before becoming prominent. Among them you’ll find filmmakers, writers, painters, composers, choreographers, and more. Each began with a creative vision, needing only freedom, time, and reassurance to transfer that inspiration onto canvas, reel, paper or stage (partial list): Ida Applebroog, Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio, John Jesurun, Susan Marshall, Meredith Monk, Yvonne Rainer, Elizabeth Streb, Julie Taymor, Thulani Davis, Tara Donovan, Karen Finley, Todd Haynes, Barbara Kruger, Mira Nair, Pauline Oliveros, Andres Serrano, Michael Sorkin, Doug Aitken.
On November 12, artist, photographer and NYFA staff member Elena Dubas will provide an overview of programs and services offered by NYFA. This link from NYFA’s recent Works Sample Seminar will also be a helpful starting point for those who may be considering a future Fellowship Application:
