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.”

Move Wright: performance art with an interactive element (video)

On Saturday (March 1) the Wright Museum of Art will debut a performance exhibit called Move Wright, between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Curated by Theatre, Dance, and Media Studies students Alen Kerić’14 and Tobin Walters’14, Move Wright takes live performance/movement art and presents it in a visual art gallery setting.

“We are trying to blur the lines between different art forms,” says Walters. “and ask questions like: ‘Why do paintings hang in galleries and performances occur on stages?’”

The idea for a performance exhibit emerged when the pair took the TDMS Professional Development course together last fall.

“We started noticing a lot of similarities in our artistic interests, approaches to performance, and desire to create our own performance event somewhere on campus,” Walters says. The first conversation about the project occurred in November and the intensive rehearsal process started just three weeks ago.

Audience members are able to come at any time during the gallery opening and are encouraged to stay for as long as they would like. They will be free to move around the space however they please and guide their own experience of Move Wright. There are a total of eight pieces and all pieces will last for the full duration of the opening, but will transform over the course of the two hours.

“My favorite part of Move Wright is its temporality and the personalization of each audience member’s experience,” says Walters. “When an audience member enters the space, we have no idea what order they will view the pieces in, or for how long. By moving through the gallery, the audience customizes the event for itself.”

This event is free and open to the campus and community. Refreshments will be served briefly at the beginning for those arriving early
