Pat Graney, Eyvind Kang bag $25K awards

Arts awards are announced every day, but only rarely do they come with a cash prize as significant as the $25,000 Arts Innovator Awards announced today by Artist Trust.

These second-annual awards recognize “Washington state artists working in any discipline who demonstrate innovation in their art practice,” according to Artist Trust, a local nonprofit that supports individual artists.

Choreographer Pat Graney and composer Eyvind Kang are this year’s winners of $25,000 each — funded by The Dale and Leslie Chihuly Foundation.

Graney is a longtime Seattleite known for her painterly performance pieces and for the Prison Project, which brings art and writing workshops to incarcerated women. Kang is a well-respected violinist and composer whose work ranges over jazz, classical music and electronica; he has collaborated with Bill Frisell, Robin Holcomb, Laurie Anderson and many others.

Here’s a video of a 2010 performance by Scrape, an original music string orchestra created by Jim Knapp and Eyvind Kang.

Artist Trust also presented two $2,500 Arts Innovator Special Recognition Awards to visual/sound artist Gary Hill and the ever-inventive arts collective SuttonBeresCuller.
