Silhouettes and attentive audience members facing a bright glow is one photographer’s artistic interpretation of the energy during a concert inside Finney Chapel. The photo also serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series.
As fall semester moves past the half-way point and the campus settles back into the rhythm of a regular school year, many of Oberlin’s traditions have reemerged.
In this week’s photo tour, we take a seat in Finney Chapel as Oberlin’s large ensembles return to the stage; attend an opening art exhibit at the Richard D. Baron ’64 Art Gallery; sway to a live concert on the patio of Spanish House; marvel at the spoken word in the Cat in the Cream; receive a warm fall welcome with food and music inside the tent in Wilder Bowl; connect with student and community organizations near the Science Center; attend an athletics and conservatory symposium in Stull Hall; dash over to a ribbon cutting in Philips Gym; rent a beautiful print from the Allen Memorial Art Museum; and clap wildly as members from the Class of 2020 walk across the stage in Tappan Square.
This Week in Photos is a selection of images and is not meant to represent a weekly timeline. Images highlight campus, community, people, and events related to Oberlin College.
The campus was abuzz this past weekend as alumni, families, and students took part in the return of several Commencement/Reunion Weekend traditions that included a performance by OCircus!, senior conservatory students, and Illumination in Tappan Square.
Students in the Class of 2022 walk down a shaded pathway that joins a large tent nestled in a backyard on Forest Street. They will soon be welcomed by their host, President Carmen Twillie Ambar, into a spring day senior garden party.
It’s a warm day in Wilder Bowl and the Oberlin community is making the most of it. Some have chosen to spend the day with friends, study, or just have fun like these two handstanding students who also serve as inspiration for this week’s photo series
