KJazz supporter The Herb Alpert Foundation, along with the California Institute of the Arts, has announced the winners of its 19th annual Alpert Awards in the Arts. The 75-thousand-dollar prizes are awarded to promising artists displaying extraordinary talent across various artistic disciplines. The 2013 winners include Julia Rhoads for dance; Kelly Copper and Pavol Liska for theater; Lucien Castaing for film and video; Alex Mincek for music; and Sharon Hayes for visual arts. Speaking about this year's winners, Mr. Alpert stated, "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 winners received their awards at a special event today at the Herb Alpert Foundation in Santa Monica. Congratulations to all from KJazz 88.1.
