Yesterday, Alex Greenberger (ARTNEWS) announced that two notable foundations in the art world are looking to help Puerto Rican artists and cultural projects. The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation will work with Hamilton actor and playwright Lin-Manuel Miranda to offer a grant of $300,000 for hurricane relief. The grant will go to El Serrucho: Hurricane Maria Emergency Fund, led by Beta-Local, a San Juan-based nonprofit that supports artists and institutions on the island. Beta-Local will now create a new series of artist grants to continue work after the devastating storm.
