Fisher Gallery

The Oberlin College Art Library owns a collection of thousands of pieces of Mail Art. Mail art is a worldwide cultural movement that began in the early 1960s and reached its peak of popularity in the 80s. It involves sending visual art through the international postal system in an effort to create a network of artists. The Exhibition Initiative has curated an exhibit of a selection of works from the library’s collection. Come hear Reid Wood, a mail artist and one of the main donor of the library’s collection, speak in the gallery at 7:15 pm on November 12th. The exhibition opening reception will begin at 8pm.
