"Back to Ghoul" Celebration Seeks Art Donations
October 1, 2012
The Columbia Faculty/Staff Scholarship Initiative will hold its annual celebration, Back To Ghoul Bash, including the popular silent auction, on November 1. Creative work by faculty and staff members has proven to be a favorite at the auction, so faculty and staff are encouraged to consider donating some of their work and be a part of the experience.
Columbia College Chicago would also like to assemble a “treasure trove” of faculty and staff work that may be used as gifts to guest speakers and other distinguished campus visitors. The college envisions a space within the library filled with examples of faculty and staff work: poems, books, CDs, games, photographs, handmade paper, DVDs, monographs, etc., where hosts would be able to select a small "basket of goodies" for their guests. This would express the college's gratitude in a manner that highlights the creativity and artistry of Columbia's constituencies.
If you have work you are willing to donate for the auction and/or the “treasure trove,” please send or bring it to Jen Sauzer at the circulation desk of the Library, along with the donation form (PDF). Please indicate whether the work is intended for the auction or the trove. The deadline for the auction is October 29. Donations for the "treasure trove" may be made at any time.
When the college has assembled a collection of works, the college community will be notified that it is available for gift giving. This year's celebration will also host a costume contest with awards and prizes.
Begun in 2009, the Columbia Faculty & Staff Scholarship Initiative
is an effort by faculty and staff to raise money for student
scholarships - every dollar donated goes toward student scholarships.
