This week the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation announced it would be celebrating its 50th anniversary doing what it has always done, but in a big way. They’re launching the Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions, an $8 million project that will help fund 10 ‘exceptional works of performing arts’ and their premiere in the Bay Area for the next five years. Non-profits from the 11 counties of the Bay Area can partner with artists and performers from around the world. John McGuirk, Director of their Performing Arts Program gives the details.
