Ellen Stewart, founder of New York's La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club, was among the five winners announced Thursday for the 2007 Praemium Imperiale arts awards for lifetime achievements.

The other winners were Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim, French artist Daniel Buren, British sculptor Tony Cragg and the Swiss architectural team of Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron.

Given annually by the Japan Art Assn. in fields not covered by the Nobel Prizes, the awards carry cash prizes of about $125,000. Japan's Prince Hitachi will bestow the awards Oct. 16 at a ceremony in Tokyo.
