The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation just released the list of the 30 artists who will receive $20,000 unrestricted grants in the 17th cycle of its biannual artist-support program.

Among the honorees are quite a few people who will be familiar to New Yorkers, like Darren Bader, who has a show at MoMA PS1 at the moment; LaToya Ruby Frazier, who’s in this year’s Whitney Biennial; Wu Tsang, who is in both the Whitney Biennial and the New Museum Triennial; and Anicka Yi, who was in this year’s White Columns Annual.

The winners were picked by a jury made up of Carnegie Museum associate curator Dan Byers, Los Angeles County Museum of Art curator Christine Y. Kim, artist Kerry James Marshall, critic John Perreault, Whitney Museum curator Scott Rothkopf, artist Cindy Sherman and American Craft Museum director emeritus Paul Smith.
