Benjamins’ artistic gift at Weatherspoon
Margaret ’01 MALS and Bill Benjamin, active champions of the Weatherspoon Art Museum, have made a generous gift to endow a faculty fellowship grant and to support the museum director’s discretionary fund to further increase accessibility to the museum and its collection.
In recognition of their impact, the Weatherspoon’s 145-seat auditorium was dedicated in the Benjamins’ honor in September.
“The Margaret and Bill Benjamin Endowed Faculty Fellowship is the first to enable UNCG faculty to plan a course or exhibition based on the museum’s renowned collection of modern and contemporary art,” said Anne and Ben Cone Memorial Endowed Director Juliette Bianco. “We thank Margaret and Bill for sharing a vision of the Weatherspoon as an increasingly accessible and inclusive space for teaching and learning with exceptional works of art.”
