Victor E. Ferrall, Jr. Endowed Artists-in-Residence Program


The Victor E. Ferrall, Jr. Endowed Artists-in-Residence Program brings distinguished visual or performing artists to campus for as little as a day or two or for as long as a semester to teach, direct workshops, and perform or exhibit his or her works. During the artist’s stay, his or her work or work created by collaborating students is presented in an exhibition at the Wright Museum of Art.

The program was established in 1998 in honor of the ninth president of Beloit College, Victor E. Ferrall.
