Congratulations to Cécile McLorin Salvant, who has been awarded a $200,000 grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation as part of its new Creative Inflections program. Salvant, a 2020 Doris Duke Artist, is one of seven artists to receive the new grant, which is given to the artist and a collaborating presenting organization. In Salvant's case, that is the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, for "Ogress: Envisioned," a multimedia, animated piece in which her illustrations bring to life her musical exploration of the true story of Sara Baartman, a 19th-century South African woman taken to Europe and put on display who now stands as a symbol of colonialist, racist, and sexist exploitation.
