Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

George Williams’ artwork to be exhibited at the Museum of Wisconsin Art

September 10, 2010 at 11:41 am

George Williams, Beloit College Professor of Art, was selected as one of six artists to be featured in the Wisconsin Museum of Art’s exhibit “Here At Last! African American Artists Who Teach at Wisconsin Colleges, Universities and Schools.”

The show celebrates these artists, who have made a commitment to living in Wisconsin, mentoring future generations of artists, and who address personal and political issues in Wisconsin and the world at large.

Williams’ painting in the show, “Possess Your Possessions,” addresses a variety of social issues, from commodification to the ideal of male beauty. “The work exists as a change agent to negate oppression and nihilism, thus giving evidence to the power of the ‘human’ struggle,” Williams says.

“Here at Last!” opened on September 1 and runs through November 7. It will be celebrated in a “Sneak Peek Friday” tonight, an opening reception on September 12, and other events.

About George's work titled  "Possess Your Possessions":

My work seeks to emancipate the iconography of the black body politics trapped within the walls of esoteric canons, ideological hierarchies, and patriarchal oppression.  The witnessing audience is invited to exercise their self-knowledge, simultaneously the work challenges the audience to interrogate their preconditioned/predetermined conclusions, in hopes of opening up spaces for an evolution of critical and liberatory consciousness. Concurrently, the paintings seek to redress the societal constructs that determine the ways in which we arrive at commodification (eating the other), objectification (labeling each other), and identify the concept of male beauty.  The work exists as a change agent to negate oppression and nihilism, thus giving evidence to the power of the “human” struggle.
