CONGRATULATIONS ARUÁN ORTIZ, DORIS DUKE IMPACT AWARD RECIPIENT!

The Doris Duke Impact Awards support talented artists who will significantly influence the fields of contemporary dance, jazz, theatre and related interdisciplinary work.

The Impact Awards also recognize the paucity of programs for particular kinds of artists (e.g. actors, dancers, designers, artists of regional significance, etc.) who may not be the focus of most national grant programs but whose potential impact on their respective fields is significant.

For the class of 2014 Doris Duke Impact Awards, Aruán Ortiz joins a select group of creative artists such as Muhal Richard Abrams, Steve Coleman, Ambrose Akinmosire, Jen Shyu, Matana Roberts and Ben Monder.
