Ronald avisa que Obama le entregó una medalla a Milton Glaser:
"I wish my mother was alive to see this," Milton Glaser told me about receiving the 2009 National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama last Thursday (the first time for a graphic designer). He was one of twelve to receive the honor for their outstanding achievements and support of the arts. The medals were presented by the president and Mrs. Michele Obama in an East Room ceremony at the White House.The National Medal of Arts is a White House initiative managed by the National Endowment for the Arts. Each year, the NEA organizes and oversees the National Medal of Arts nomination process and notifies the artists of their selection to receive a medal, the nation’s highest honor for artistic excellence.
Lindo gesto que haríamos bien en imitar en nuestras pampas. Acá tenemos un zafarrancho de premios y declaraciones ilustres, pero ninguno parece tener el alcance de la National Medal of Arts. Vale la pena ver el video en el portal de la Casa Blanca. Glaser también menciona el tema en su web.
