Allen Memorial Art Museum Reopens

The Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College has reopened after a twenty-month renovation. Admission to the Museum is free. According to Museum officials, the galleries are newly installed to “showcase the breadth and importance of the AMAM’s permanent collection, which ranges from ancient art from the Near East and Egypt to works made by today’s contemporary artists.”

The Museum will hold a “First Thursday” event on Sept. 8 which will feature evening hours from 6–9pm. Handheld audio tours will be available to visitors.

A full calendar of public programs returns this month, including Tuesday Tea lectures (beginning on Sept. 13 at 2:30pm) and Sunday Object talks (beginning on Sept. 18 at 2pm).

While in Oberlin visiting the Allen, you can extend your itinerary to visit Oberlin’s many other cultural gems, great eateries and unique shops. Check out the Visit Lorain County website for lodging, dining and shopping information.
