COLLECTION OF THE ART INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO, RESTRICTED GIFT OF THE DAVID C. AND SARAJEAN RUTTENBERG ARTS FOUNDATION

The John Simon Guggenheim Foundation named its 2017 fellows today. Among the 173 scholars, artists, and writers who will be receiving fellowships are artists Byron Kim, Leigh Ledare, and Zinadu Saro-Wiwa.

“It’s exciting to name 173 new Guggenheim fellows,” Edward Hirsch, the foundation’s president, said in a statement. “Each year since 1925, the Guggenheim Foundation has bet everything on the individual, and we’re thrilled to continue to do so with this wonderfully talented and diverse group. It’s an honor to be able to support these individuals to do the work they were meant to do.”

Below are the relevant art-related fellows. A full list of the 2017 fellows is available on the foundation’s website.
