ArtsWinthrop Gala

ArtsWinthrop held the inaugural Scholarship Gala on Friday, November 1, 2019. The event was a resounding success thanks to the generous contributions for our donors, faculty, staff, and Winthrop community!

Guests posed on the red carpet as paparazzi bulbs flashed. Aerial dancers performed acrobatic dance as sounds from the Winthrop Swingin’ Eagles jazz ensemble filled McBryde Hall. Matt Ferrell, assistant professor of theatre, crooned our favorites by Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and others, and our talented dance students entertained with a jazzy and high energy performance. Artwork by our faculty and student artists were exhibited and available for purchase.

From the students and faculty members who performed to the team behind the scenes coordinating the event, each one of the members of the ArtsWinthrop community came together in an tremendous effort to successfully raise funds for student scholarships.


In just one evening, you helped us raise scholarship funds for students pursuing the arts at Winthrop. We are confident participation and giving will continue to grow as our community rallies around our talented student artists.

We look forward to changing many more lives together! 

If you would like more information on how to support our students with a donation that will go directly to scholarships for students studying theatre, dance, fine arts, design, or music at Winthrop, please visit our donation page.
