The Himmel Award, named in honor of Betty Himmel who was instrumental in defining the direction and mission of the Katonah Museum of Art and has served as an arts advocate and community leader for many years, recognizes those creators and conceivers, radical thinkers and risk takers who have demonstrated their ability to incite, excite, and provoke new thinking in the arts. Reservations required; call 914-232-9555 x2968. About Maya Lin: Maya Lin has maintained a careful balance between art and architecture throughout her career, having virtually redefined the idea of the monument with her highly acclaimed Vietnam Veterans' Memorial in 1982. She has since gone on to successfully pursue the creation of a remarkable body of work that encompasses large-scale site-specific installations, intimate studio artworks, architectural works and memorials. Maya Lin (b. 1959, Athens, Ohio) graduated cum laude from Yale University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1981. She went on to earn her Master of Architecture degree from Yale in 1986, and has maintained a professional studio in New York City since then. She serves on the Board of Trustees of the Museum of Chinese in America, The Bloomberg Family Foundation, and The What is Missing? Foundation. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 2005. In 2009 Maya Lin was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=119905 Chappaqua Crossing true DD/MM/YYYY
