It has just been announced that Nate Wooley is one of the recipients of the 2016 FCA Grants to Artists Awards. Foundation for Contemporary Arts is a non-profit organization founded in 1963 by John Cage and Jasper Johns and provides unsolicited help to musicians, poets, theater writers and performers, and choreographers. Alongside percussionist William Winant, composer Ashley Fure, and legendary vocalist Joan LaBarbara (who is this year's Cage awardee), Wooley will receive 40,000.00 to use for future work.
It is a great honor, and now begins the planning for what to do next.
