The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is awarding grants worth $27.6 million to arts organizations across the U.S., and one of those recipients is Fort Worth’s Amon Carter Museum of American Art.

The local museum will receive $30,000 for its upcoming exhibit, Nature and Spirit: Marsden Hartley’s Mysticism, which will debut February 2017. The exhibit will showcase work by modernist painter Marsden Hartley.

The NEA is a federal agency that provides funding and support for the arts across the U.S. The Amon Carter museum is one of 1,126 projects receiving grants in the NEA’s first round of funding for the 2016 fiscal year.

“The arts are part of our everyday lives – no matter who you are or where you live, they have the power to transform individuals, spark economic vibrancy in communities and transcend the boundaries across diverse sectors of society,” NEA Chairman Jane Chu said in a release. “Supporting projects like the one from the Amon Carter offers more opportunities to engage in the arts every day.”
