The National Endowment for the Arts has named the 2012 NEA National Heritage Fellows: eight folk and traditional artists recognized for their artistic excellence and efforts to conserve America’s culture for future generations. In addition, for the first time ever, the NEA recognized a director of a state arts agency for his work in promoting the importance of the folk and traditional arts in defining and giving life to a community. The fellowships are the nation’s highest honor in the folk and traditional arts, and include a one-time award of $25,000.
