Seattle sculptor Claudia Fitch has won the Artist Trust Irving and Yvonne Twining Humber Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement. That’s a long way of saying she won $10,000 for devoting at least 25 years of her life to visual art. Fitch has works in museums and galleries, but she is perhaps best-known for her public artwork — a career path that launched when she was living in Rome as a graduate student. Her commissions include “Colossal Heads” at Qwest Field, “Shift” at Lynnwood Transit Center, “The Balance of One Order Within Another” at Eastgate Park & Ride, Bellevue, and “Placeholders: Cloud, Rock, Tree,” (the giant orange structure/grouping at Terry and Thomas in South Lake Union).

Humber Award panelists were Pat DeCaro and Sally Schuh, of Seattle, and Shalon Parker, of Spokane.
