Chandeliers, pendants, and wall sconces hang from ceilings and are affixed to the sides of buildings like architectural jewelry around campus. While they are appreciated, these pieces can blend seamlessly into the style of their surroundings. Until now. Can you name the space where this chandelier resides?

Were you able to guess which campus building this chandelier resides? If not, perhaps it would help to know that the building was designed by the same architects responsible for Warner Gymnasium. 

Before clicking on the answer key, continue testing your detective skills by naming the location of the lights below.

This week’s Where Am I? is a small art exhibit with works created by both college and community members. Hand-painted leaves, intricate mosaics, drawings, and other forms of expression cling to the walls of buildings on campus and in the town of Oberlin. In fact, the piece pictured here is located in a space known for expression. Can you guess where it resides?
