Fine Art Finals competition now open!


The Fine Art Finals is in its second year in awarding scholarships to students who make art. You do not need to be an art major to apply for this competition, and many forms of media are accepted. The competition invites art in media from drawing, printmaking, photography, and graphic design to sculpture, jewelry, fibers, and digital arts. The finalists of the competition are judged based on the “quality, creativity, and originality of their work.” At Oberlin, we compete in the midwest division, and the winner receives $1200.

To find out more about how to enter and to see last year’s winners, please visit here.

Check it out- Oberlin Class blogs

We’re not the only art blog around Oberlin! Quite a few classes in the department are keeping blogs for themselves. Here’re the ones we know about

The photography lab keeps a photo classes blog. From there, you can navigate to individual blogs of all the students currently taking photography classes.

Land Arts in an Electronic Age has a class blog that students take a turn at being the designated blogger. The land arts class has another page that commemorates their recent experiences in Gary, Indiana with the Center for Land Use Interpretation.

The digital design classes also keep blogs- here is the beginning class, and here is the advanced class.

Know of any blogs that we should mention? Let us know.

Free film screening, courtesy of AMAM

At 7 pm this Thursday, November 4, in West Lecture Hall (Science Center), the Allen Memorial Art Museum will be presenting a FREE screening of the new documentary The Rape of Europa. This film has been making its way around the country since late 2006, and is finally coming to Oberlin. It tells the story of what happened to so much of Europe’s art in lands under Nazi occupation during WWII, and the impact this has had on the art and the world to this day

To find out more about the film and to see a trailer (if you haven’t already decided on coming), please visit its website.
