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.”

Ginsberg Artist’s work ‘a commentary on the American landscape’ (video)

February 18, 2013 at 4:51 pm

Rico Gatson, the 2013 Ginsberg Family Artist-in-Residence, will give a public lecture about his sculptures, videos, and paintings Wednesday (Feb. 20) at 8 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium of Morse-Ingersoll Hall.


Click here to see a video portrait of Gatson, and preview some of his vibrant work. In the interview, he also talks about how he self-identifies as an artist—as a sculptor who paints.

Gatson’s work is politically and racially charged, a social commentary on the American landscape informed, his bio says, by “repetition, accumulation, and wit.” He received a master of fine arts degree from the Yale School of Art and a bachelor's degree from Bethel College in St. Paul, Minn. Gatson has participated in numerous exhibitions at venues including Momenta Art in Brooklyn, N.Y., the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and Ronald Feldman Fine Arts in New York City. He was an Artist-in-Residence at Franconia Sculpture Park in St. Paul, Minn. He lives and works in New York.

The Ginsberg Family Artist-in-Residence program was established with a gift of Stuart Ginsberg'82 and his wife, Lisa, to bring distinguished individuals or groups to campus to teach, conduct workshops, and perform or exhibit works.
