Artforum.com and Bloomberg.com recently reported that Ann Hamilton (Season 1) is among the winners of the Heinz Family Foundation’s 2008 Human Achievement Awards. The Heinz Awards honors those who have distinguished themselves in the arts and humanities, the environment, technology, the economy and by improving the human condition. Hamilton won the $250,000 award for her installations that often use items culled from flea markets and warehouses. She’ll receive the award on October 21 at a ceremony in Pittsburgh, where the Heinz Foundation is based. Congratulations, Ann!
