KMA’s annual Himmel Award honors A-list creative talent who have made a significant impact in their field. This spring we celebrate husband and wife, Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly. Best known for championing and elevating the role of graphic novels and comics to the realm of literature, Spiegelman won the Pulitzer Prize for his graphic novel Maus, and Mouly serves as art editor of The New Yorker. Together, they founded RAW, the acclaimed avant-garde comics magazine in 1980. Enjoy a discussion rooted in how artful text and image can raise social consciousness.

The Himmel Award:
Katonah Museum of Art Himmel Award and Lecture is an annual event in recognition of creators, conceivers, radical thinkers and risk-takers that provoke new thinking in the arts and design. The Award is named in honor of Betty Himmel, who was instrumental in defining the direction and mission of the Katonah Museum of Art and has served as an arts advocate and community leader for many years.
