In its second round of funding for fiscal year 2014, the National Endowment for the Arts announced that it will award more than $2.5 million to 30 nonprofits in the District.

Here are some highlights:

  • The National Building Museum gets $50,000 for an exhibit on the work of the Bjarke Ingels architecture firm (including, presumably, this dizzying human maze)
  • PEN/Faulkner gets $40,000 to provide free books and author visits to area public schools
  • GALA Hispanic Theatre gets $30,000 to produce Los empenos de una casa (The House of Desire), a 17th century Mexican play
  • George Washington University gets $60,000 for post-production of a documentary film on a performance piece about rehabilitating veterans
  • NPR gets $110,000 to expand its music programming: $40,000 for more hip-hop and R&B coverage, and $70,000 for multimedia in NPR Music
  • Step AfrikA! gets $15,000 for youth classes in step-dancing and its roots at HBCUs
  • FotoDC gets $20,000 for workshops and professional development opportunities for photographers during FotoWeek DC
