Pew fellowships for 2009 announced

Just in this morning, although percolating through the grapevine all weekend, the Pew Fellowships in the Arts has announced the 2009 fellows — an outstanding list of works on paper artists, media artists and fiction and creative non-fiction writers!  Congratulations to the fellows (many of them well-loved here on artblog) and to Pew Fellowships, 18-years old this year and one of the champion givers to the arts.  This year brings the total number of awards to 232 fellowships (including 3 collaborative teams) totaling $11,840,000.   The grant amount, by the way, is $60,000 per fellow (raised from $50,000 in 2008).
