The Daily Breeze, proper fish wrap in the Los Angeles area, reports that:
Robert Redford tonight will receive the USC School of Theatre's inaugural Robert Redford Award for Engaged Artists, honoring not only the actor's career but his social activism.
"The Robert Redford Award for Engaged Artists honors an individual who has used his or her fame to increase public awareness of issues that are of vital importance to us all," said Madeline Puzo, dean of the USC School of Theatre.
"Robert Redford truly embodies all that an `engaged artist' represents," she said. "He is a distinguished actor, an Academy Award-winning director, and ardent conservationist, philanthropist and environmentalist, a man who stands for social responsibility and political involvement and an artist and businessman who is a staunch supporter of uncompromised creative expression."
Good on him.
