About the Grant

$20,000 to support Peggy Shaw's Miss America (MAP 2007), a one woman show that challenges the public perception of gender politics.

About the Project

Miss America is a one-woman show that challenges the notions of size, scale, popularity, beauty and the public perception of gender politics. Performed by avant-garde performance veteran Peggy Shaw, Miss America explores the culture of the beauty queen and pageantry through the eyes and mind of a downtown, East Village, New York City artist.
