Highlights from the Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions

In 2017, we launched the Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions in celebration of the foundation’s 50th anniversary. The awards support extraordinary artists working with Bay Area nonprofits to create works with themes deeply meaningful to local audiences. We commissioned 50 works over five years across five performing arts disciplines: music composition, theater & spoken word, dance, folk & traditional arts, and media arts. Hewlett 50 recipients share more about their projects and the impact the awards have had on them and their community.
