Allen’s wealth of online resources

The Allen Memorial Art Museum has a new page on its website meant to supplement the collection through a variety of ways. This online resources page features a variety of information to use; the most interesting for the casual visitor would probably be the new downloadable audio on selected works from the Allen. Right now there are two files up, but more are being recorded and will be available soon. There are also links to the AMAM’s facebook page and Flickr account that are worth a look. Finally, there is a list of links, both internal and external, to serve as teaching resources for educators who would like to use the AMAM’s collection.

All in all, this is an exciting rollout. Hopefully the page will grow with more content over time, so be sure to check it out now and visit it again later.

Two years of AICUO excellence

Last year we blogged about Georgia Wall (OC ’08) winning the top prize from the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Ohio (AICUO). This year AICUO recognized senior Amy Rinaldi as the grand prize winner, and also recognized senior Antonio Papania-Davis, Oberlin’s other nominee for the award, as a finalist. Congratulations to both of them for this achievement!

The Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, A.I.C.U.O., created an Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts to raise awareness of their member institutions and the artists they educate. Each of the member Colleges and Universities (there are over forty) are invited to nominate two graduating seniors as candidates for this competition. Six of the nominees are chosen by an independent jury of artists as finalists for the award.
