Nearly 400 works were rented at Art Rental in the Allen Memorial Art Museum in September. Lines formed promptly at 8 a.m. and remained steady until the event ended at 3 p.m. Each student was shown a random choice of five works and made one selection to enjoy in their residence hall rooms. Rentals are typically $5, but this year works were free of charge.
