NEA Gives 8g To Miller, Hughes

The National Endowment for the Arts announced 735 grants Nov. 5, worth $16.85 million, for the fourth quarter of the year, the Associated Press reports.

They include $8,000 fellowships to performance artists Tim Miller and Holly Hughes, who are suing the NEA because they were previously turned down.

Chairman John E. Frohnmayer said the two were among 19 performance artists who received grants, out of 124 applicants. They were approved by a panel of private citizens, most of them artists, by the presidentially appointed National Council on the Arts and by Frohnmayer.

He had vetoed grants for Miller, Hughes, Karen Finley and John Fleck in June 1990, on what he said were the artistic merits of their applications. In their suit, the artists argue they were rejected for political reasons.
