March 2014 grant awards were announced today by the National Endowment for the Humanities. One in particular promises to be of great interest to BA readers: an exhibit on "Art of American Dance" by the Detroit Institute of Arts. The Institute received $300,000 for "implementation of a traveling exhibition exploring the ways in which American visual art from 1820 to 1960 depicted and was inspired by dance." Project director is Jane Dini. The announcement does not provide dates when we can expect to see this or where it will be travelling, but it sounds like something to watch for.


Here's the complete list of grants announced today:

This sounds excellent -- thanks so much for the heads-up and the link. 


If you've got a few moments, take a look at the wild variety of work that the NEH is supporting this year.  It's a great overview of human curiosity.
