New York's John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation has announced its 2014 U.S. and Canada Guggenheim Fellows.
The 178 winners were culled from a field of almost 3,000 applicants and represent 56 different disciplines in the creative arts, humanities, natural and social sciences. This year the fine arts section boasts 23 fellows, in addition to 11 in photography and 14 in film and video. The winners for each of these three categories are listed below.
The Guggenheim fellowship was established in 1925, and has granted over $315 million in grant money to more than 17,700 individuals. The prize awards funds to support a project for between six and 12 months.
