Woodstock, NY —National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Jane Chu has approved more than $30 million in grants as part of the NEA’s first major funding announcement for fiscal year 2017. Included in this announcement is an Art Works grant of $20,000 to The Center for Photography at Woodstock for their Woodstock AIR program.
