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: Student-curated and traveling exhibits open this week

November 25, 2012 at 10:13 pm

 

This Thursday the Wright Museum opens two new exhibits. One exemplifies the gallery as a component of a course offering, and the other is a contemporary twist on a traditional show.

Paint, Print, and Peeping: Picturing Realities and Realisms
In this class-based project, English 257: Studies in Literature students extend their study of American realism, naturalist fiction, and Ashcan art to engage with a more diverse collection of museum holdings. They examined topics such as objectivity and perspective, the dynamics of spectacle, and the documentation of social conditions.

Pictured are the students engaging the objects they have chosen, as well as the space, prior to installation. The show opens Thursday at 4 p.m. Come see the finished product, and ask a literature major what it’s like translating the written word into visual language.

Looking Ahead: Portraits from the Mott-Warsh Collection
The first exhibit provided by the George S. Parker Exhibition fund brings a collection of traditional and conceptual portraits of the black face and head to the Hollensteiner Gallery. This traveling show includes works--some of which are pictured below--by contemporary artists like Chuck Close, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Romare Bearden. The Wright Museum encourages all students, faculty, and staff to view the show and then bring their thoughts, questions, or opinions to the closing panel discussion on Jan. 18, 2013.
