Have you ever wondered how Art Rental works? Check out our behind-the-scenes video to learn more about the process and pieces of Art Rental. 

Take a look behind the scenes as staff at the Allen Memorial Art Museum bring art rental together. Founded in 1940 by art historian Ellen Johnson '33, the Art Rental Program allows Oberlin students to rent two original works of art each semester for just $5 each. Where else but Oberlin can students hang works by such artists as Toulouse-Lautrec and Picasso in a dorm room?
