Through its grant-making to thousands of nonprofits each year, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) promotes opportunities for people in communities across America to experience the arts and exercise their creativity.
In the second major grant announcement of fiscal year 2015, the NEA will make a $15,000 award to New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) to support the company’s restaging of the 1984 work Antique Epigraphs. The NEA will make 1,023 awards totaling $74.3 million nationwide in this funding round.
NEA Chairman Jane Chu said, “The NEA is committed to advancing learning, fueling creativity, and celebrating the arts in cities and towns across the United States. Funding these new projects like the one from New York Theatre Ballet represents an investment in both local communities and our nation’s creative vitality.”
“We are thrilled to receive this grant, an endorsement of the worthwhile venture of restaging Antique Epigraphs,” said Diana Byer, artistic director of New York Theatre Ballet. “We are grateful to the National Endowment for the Arts for committing to help us achieve this goal.”
