The addition of summer semester for the 2020-2021 academic year gave many students another opportunity to live with pieces of artwork from the Allen Memorial Art Museum. Three students carrying their selections from the program serve as inspiration for this week’s photo series.
These three students—and others who are also enrolled this semester—participated in an 81-year-old tradition this past weekend. On June 5, students arrived at the Allen Memorial Art Museum (AMAM), selected a piece of artwork, and walked their carefully wrapped packages back to their residence halls, where they will be on display for the remainder of the semester. Although Art Rental procedures were slightly adjusted this year, the semesterly program continued to give students the opportunity to truly appreciate a work of art by living with it over time. This semester more than 340 pieces of artwork were rented by students. See more summer Art Rental photos on Oberlin’s Flickr page.
Our photo series continues with another tradition, TGIF, and works its way downtown to the reopening of the Apollo Theatre. A movie shown on the Dick Bailey Football Field and stargazing atop Peters Hall concludes this week’s tour.
