M.C. Ginsberg Jewelers supports the arts as enrichment for the whole community. Soon after buying his father’s jewelry store in 1985, Mark Ginsberg established the M.C. Ginsberg Fund to serve the arts community in Iowa City through free exhibitions, public lectures, artists’ workshops, and community arts events. Known for initiating cultural programming as well as hoping to inspire other businesses, large and small, to follow its lead, M.C. Ginsberg Jewelers spans more than two decades of committed activism in the arts. The business has given nearly $600,000 to the arts since 1984, in addition to countless in-kind donations and volunteer hours.

Desire defies reason.
