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.
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
The artistic display of dance, poetry, and music that students brought to the stage in Finney Chapel marked the return of a cherished Oberlin tradition—Colors of Rhythm. The annual talent showcase highlights the work of students of color, and serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series.
