“`Over a thousand museums across the country decided to apply for several substantial grants that was being offered by a genial host of a television show, and the winning repositories were announced by John Oliver on his program, Last Week Tonight. The goal was to provide some financial support to museums that were struggling amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“`Oliver has announced five winners: The Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago, American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, William V. Banks Broadcast Museum and Media Center in Detroit, and the  Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco. Each museum will receive a $10,000 grant, and each program will donate an extra $10,000 to a food bank located close by each of the museums.  For the Judy Garland Museum, this will go to Second Harvest North Central Food Bank.

“`In exchange, each museum is to host three odds works of art provided by the show as part of a traveling exhibition:

  • A portrait of television host Wendy Williams eating a lamb chop
  • A painting of some rolled-up ties on a trunk
  • A couple of anthropomorphized rats getting a bit frisky

“`The exhibit will be on display through September 28th.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
