A new International Arts Movement grant will offer artists relief during the coronavirus pandemic. Named the Hilary Teachout Grants, they honor the memory of the wife of theatre critic Terry Teachout; she passed away during the COVID-19 crisis due to an illness that required a double lung transplant.
“Hilary Teachout’s passionate love of all the performing arts was boundless—no audience ever had a more enthusiastic member—and it is deeply gratifying to me to know that this grant will honor her blessed memory," shared Terry Teachout in a statement online. "My warmest thanks to all who have made it possible, and my heartfelt congratulations to all who will benefit from it.”
Critic Terry Teachout has a long-time affiliation with IAM, a nonprofit founded by Makoto Fujimura exploring questions of art, faith, and humanity in collaboration with the Fujimura Institute. Learn more about the organization by visiting iamculturecare.com.
