Salon.org, the magazine that covers the arts, media, music, and culture, announced the winner of its 2017 Person Of The Year Award.
The honor was presented by The Whitney Museum of American Art.
“As we begin to consider the people who have made the greatest impact in the past year, we recognize the art world’s most celebrated artists for their creativity, hard work, and determination to create new worlds and experiences,” Salon editor-in-chief Jennifer Dickey said.
“This year’s honorees include some of our own favorites: Naughty By Nature’s Emily Pizzolatto, David Byrne’s Jonathan Coulton, and Lili Allen, the new co-founder of the Los Angeles-based collective Naughty Bodies.
Others included Rachel Weisz, David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, and the legendary artist and activist Paul Robeson.”
The Person Of the Year award is named for the magazine’s most recent Person Of Year in September 2017.
The person who best exemplifies Salon’s mission to inform, inspire, and educate through its work in arts, culture, and politics will be announced on January 11, 2018.
The Person of The Year is named in honor of the magazine itself, which was founded in 1995.
