Veteran actor Robert Redford was honored by the University of Southern California’s School of Theatre with the inaugural Engaged Artist Award on Wednesday, February 10.

“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. 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.”

The ceremony was attended by a wide selection of Redford’s peers, including Sally Field, Rene Russo, Tom Skerritt, Alfre Woodard, Robin Wright, Olivia Munn, director Richard Donner and producer Sid Ganis.
