Award Winning Artists Who are Expert in their Artwork.

Many artists, scientists, and other creative people had entertained the incident of getting a phone call from an unidentified number in Chicago in late summer when it was a fantasy.

And when it happens it doesn’t seems like a reality.

The playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins said ““I thought I was having a psychotic breakdown.”

This was his reaction when he comes to know about that he selected among the 23 people as 2016 fellows of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

He further said ““I went out on the street, and ran into a friend. I had him look at my cell phone, just to confirm that the call had been real.”

The winner of this year’s MacArthur fellowships awarded by originality, insight, and potential.

The awards publicly announced on Thursday, and it included writers, visual artists, scientists, nonprofit organization leaders and others.

The reward is going to make the difference in their lives which is recognition and money — a no-strings-attached grant of $625,000.

People can change their lives with the help of this reward, and these awards are the best source of motivation for the people who are performing in this field.

Maggie Nelson who is a 43 years old essayist and she won the award for her book named “The Argonauts.” She won 2015 National Book Critics Circle Award for criticism for her writing and how she conveyed her message to the people.

The subject of the book revolves around the topic based on the hard-to-classify exploration of gender, motherhood, and identity.

These are the issues nobody pays attention to, and people like to read the books which are without any subject, but this writer did justice to the words and topic of the essay.

Mr. Jacobs-Jenkins who is 31 years old and the youngest one among all. He is well-known because of the plays like “An Octoroon” and “Neighbors.”

At its center is a romance: the story of the author's relationship with the artist Harry Dodge. This story, which includes Nelson's account of falling in love with Dodge, who is fluidly gendered, as well as her journey to and through a pregnancy, offers a firsthand account of the complexities and joys of (queer) family-making. Writing in the spirit of public intellectuals such as Susan Sontag and Roland Barthes, Nelson binds her personal experience to a rigorous exploration of what iconic theorists have said about sexuality, gender, and the vexed institutions of marriage and child-rearing.
