Terri Lyne Carrington and George Lewis have been honored as 2019 Doris Duke Artists, sharing that distinction with innovators in theater and contemporary dance. The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation announced the awards this morning.

Each Doris Duke Artist receives an award of $275,000, most of which is entirely unrestricted. ($25,000 is earmarked for retirement savings and later life needs.)
