letters | philanthropist thinks outside the box

Why doubt proven local sponsor?

I HAVE a pretty simple take on the Outside the Box Festival conceived by Ted Cutler (“Ted Cutler’s thinking way outside the box,” Page A1, June 30). A man with a great track record of supporting the arts in Boston is willing to make a multimillion-dollar investment in bringing art, dance, music, and theater to our city. He is eager to attract both celebrated international artists but also many local musicians and creators. And he is willing to offer all this for free to those of us who live in Boston.

Sure, artistic people will not always agree on what should be presented, and start-ups don’t always unfold without a few bumps in the road. But it seems to me unequivocal that Boston is better off with Outside the Box than without it.
