Herb Alpert & Lani Hall, American arts philanthropists par excellence, oversee 2012 Alpert Awards
Category: Dance, Film, Music, Theater, Visual arts | Tags: herb alpert, lani hall, the alpert awards, the alpert foundation
The Herb Alpert Foundation and California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) have awarded the 18th annual Alpert Award in the Arts to five exceptional mid–career artists. The award, a prize of $75,000, recognizes past performance and future promise to artists working in Dance, Film/Video, Music, Theatre and Visual Arts. Herb Alpert, the legendary musician and artist who created the Herb Alpert Foundation with his wife Lani Hall and gave the first Alpert Award in the Arts in 1995, says, “All of this year’s winners represent the essence of the Alpert Award. They take aesthetic, intellectual and political risks, and challenge worn-out conventions. They’re unafraid of the unknown.”​
The 2012 Alpert Awardees are:
  • Nora Chipaumire, Dance
  • Eisa Davis, Theatre
  • Kevin Everson, Film/Video
  • Myra Melford, Music
  • Michael Smith, Visual Arts

That Alpert Awards website is pretty cool. I like the design of it. Classy and offbeat, slightly confusing layout at first but really a lot of information there, neatly presented.

I agree the CalArts site is pretty neat--I usually take a glance at it every so often. :agree:
