Milton Glaser received the 2009 National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama last Thursday (the first time for a graphic designer). He was one of twelve to receive the honor for their outstanding achievements and support of the arts. The medals were presented by the president and Mrs. Michele Obama in an East Room ceremony at the White House.
In presenting the award President Obama said, "The 2009 National Medal of Arts to Milton Glaser, for a lifetime devoted to improving the way people communicate through innovation in graphic design, and for memorable visual artifacts that challenge contemporary artists and delight all Americans."
The National Medal of Arts is a White House initiative managed by the National Endowment for the Arts. Each year, the NEA organizes and oversees the National Medal of Arts nomination process and notifies the artists of their selection to receive a medal, the nation’s highest honor for artistic excellence.
"These individuals and organizations show us how many ways art works every day. They represent the breadth and depth of American architecture, design, film, music, performance, theatre, and visual art, " said NEA Chairman Rocco Landesman. "This lifetime honor recognizes their exceptional contributions, and I join the President and the country in saluting them."
In addition to Glaser the recipients include Bob Dylan, Clint Eastwood, Maya Lin, Rita Moreno, Jessye Norman, Joseph P. Riley, Jr., Frank Stella, Michael Tilson Thomas, and John Williams. As Steve Heller said in his post: "Sadly Dylan could not attend, thus making the inevitable photo-op between the poster maker and the poster subject impossible."

If the weather is nice it's worth asking if you can you get married outdoors? If it rains, there's no lengthy drive, getting in and out of cars and the bridal party getting wet. The guests also stay nice and dry and warm during a winter wedding once they've arrived at the venue also. One final thing to remember though is that when you book your dream wedding venue make sure a celebrant is available on the day.ReplyDelete
