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.”

MUSEUM MONDAYS: Remembering Rembrandt

February 6, 2011 at 6:44 pm

 

A lecture in Beloit College’s Wright Museum of Art will explore the life of Rembrandt and the impact of his genius over the centuries.

Dennis Weller, curator of northern European art at the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, N.C., will present “Rembrandt: Past and Present,” on at 7 p.m. Wednesday (Feb. 9) in the Logan Room of the Wright Museum of Art. A reception precedes the lecture at 6:30 p.m. Both are free of charge.  

“Self Portrait with Saskia,” a recently conserved etching from the Wright Museum of Art’s collection, is among the masterpieces that will be illustrated and discussed.

 Weller will talk about how Rembrandt’s early fame and fortune faded, and how the artist died in poverty. However, his paintings, drawings, and prints continue to attract the attention of collectors, scholars, and museum visitors. The perception of Rembrandt and the scope of his vast accomplishments have changed over the centuries, prompted largely by many controversial attributions.

 The lecture and the restoration of “Self Portrait with Saskia” are made possible by Beloit College’s Wanda Hollensteiner Endowed Conservation fund, which was created through a gift from alumna Wanda Peterson Hollensteiner, Beloit College class of 1954.
