Sunday Object Talks

Offered most Sundays during the academic year, these talks are oriented specifically towards the casual visitor to the AMAM. Each talk focuses on one work in the collection or on view in a current exhibition, and lasts approximately fifteen minutes plus questions. Conducted by an Oberlin College student docent, these talks are a fantastic opportunity to learn about new objects or revisit old ‘friends’ from the collection.

Talks begin at 2pm. Each student-led talk focuses on a work in one of the galleries. Spring semester talks begin on February 5 and run through April 30 (except for March 19 and 26, and April 16).
