Grant Programs Grants By Nomination

John Cage Award

The John Cage Award was endowed and established in 1992 in honor of the late composer, one of FCA’s founders. From 1992 to 2022 the award was made through an invited nomination process to an artist who had a connection to John Cage. As of 2024, the award is made biennially through FCA’s Grants to Artists program in recognition of outstanding achievement in the arts for work that reflects the spirit of John Cage.

The John Cage Award is administered by a confidential nomination and selection process. Applications and unsolicited nominations are not accepted.
