The new 2009 Fellows of the United States Artists were just announced today, with an incredible array of artists in several different categories. United States Artists (click here for their homepage) is a relatively new organization which awards unrestricted $50,000 grants to fifty artists a year.

In literature awards this year, honorees include graphic novel pioneer Gilbert Hernandez; novelist Antonya Nelson; poet Kevin Young; and the incredible Sapphire– author of Push (among many other works), the book on which the critically acclaimed movie Precious is based.
