Herb Alpert Foundation and the California Institute of the Arts: Celebrating 20 years of Collaboration

The Herb Alpert Award was initiated and funded by the Herb Alpert Foundation and has been administered by California Institute of the Arts since 1994. During their prize year, Herb Alpert Award winners spend at least one week in residence at CalArts. Some - including playwrights Suzan-Lori Parks and Carl Hancock Rux, and composer Anne LeBaron - have returned as full-time faculty. Dean of CalArts' Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance at CalArts Stephan Koplowitz first came to CalArts after winning the 2004 Herb Alpert Award in Dance.
