Nicole Marroquin (MFA 2008) was recently awarded a prestigious United States Artists (USA) Fellowship.

Chicago-based nonprofit United States Artists (USA) on Thursday announced sixty-three recipients of its 2022 fellowships. Each will receive $50,000, no strings attached. The honorees — working across the disciplines of architecture and design, craft, dance, film, media, music, theater and performance, traditional arts, visual art, and writing — together comprise the organization’s largest class of fellows whose work represents what USA cast as a growing commitment to elevating and amplifying underrepresented voices.” These sixty-three fellows are representative of the magnificent range of disciplines and diversity of our nation’s artists,” said USA board chair Ed Henry in a statement. USA has awarded more than $36 million in support to more than 750 artists since its founding sixteen years ago.
