I was lucky to volunteer with the amazing team that put on Outside The Box in 2016. It was really fun – wicked smart and talented people delivering on Teds’ vision of ‘arts for all’. And oh what a festival! Days of bliss – and incredible performances – on the Boston Common.
I think that picture tells Ted’s story better than this one.
Yup, that’s Ted. He was wicked cool guy to be around. He had such passion for doing good and making a difference. He had a wicked sense of humor and a great sense of himself.
Others can tell you better about the impact he had in the Boston Philanthropy scene:
- Arts patron who donated millions to help those in need dies at 86
- Ted Cutler, Boston Arts Philanthropist, Dies At 86
- Ted Cutler, premier arts patron in Boston, dies at 86
I can just tell you that I was very lucky to know him for a very short time in a very peripheral way.
I don’t think there’s any better way to go through life than by making a difference. And it mattered that Ted was here. In Boston. Because he sure made a difference.
