ALLEN MEMORIAL ART MUSEUM AND FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT HOUSE TO OFFER ACTIVITIES ON ART MUSEUM DAY, SUNDAY, MAY 18
OBERLIN, OH—The Allen Memorial Art Museum (AMAM) will offer two events to mark this year’s celebration of Art Museum Day. Held by museums across North America, the annual day is organized by the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) and coincides with International Museum Day.
There will be free admission and a craft activity at the AMAM’s Weltzheimer-Johnson House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, from noon to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 18, as part of Art Museum Day. Located at 534 Morgan Street in Oberlin, the Weltzheimer-Johnson House is the first home designed by Wright in Ohio and as is one of the few in the state open to the general public.
The AMAM will also offer a special guided tour of its modern and contemporary gallery. This tour, “Redefining Normal: An Artistic Exploration,” asks visitors to consider, “What is normal? Is there a right way to make art, and to view it?” Oberlin College students Mengchen (Sue) Xu (OC ’16) and Lily Zimmerman (OC ’14) will host an afternoon of art, crafts, and conversation to explore these questions through the lens of accessibility and neurodiversity. The event will begin with a guided tour of relevant works from the museum’s collection, followed by the opportunity for participants to create their own works in response (materials will be provided). This event is sponsored by the AMAM and the college’s Office of Disability Services in celebration of International Museum Day.
“Art Museum Day emphasizes the essential role of art museums in their communities, highlights the value of the visual arts in society, and provides new opportunities for audiences to participate in programs,” said Andria Derstine, the John G.W. Cowles director of the AMAM.
“Art museums play a powerful role as community gathering places, bringing together people from all walks of life to experience the best of human creativity,” said Chris Anagnos, executive director of AAMD. “We are so pleased that Oberlin is joining us in this celebration.”
Visit http://www.aamd.org for a list of participating art museums. The AMAMalso invites visitors to share their experiences on Art Museum Day via social media with the hashtag #ArtMuseumDay.
Founded in 1917, the AMAM houses an encyclopedic collection of more than 14,000 objects selected to provide a comprehensive overview of the history of art from virtually every culture. Recognized as one of the five best academic museums in the country, the Allen is free and open to all.
Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm; Sunday, 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. The museum is closed Mondays and major holidays. Free educational or group guided tours may be arranged by calling the museum’s Education Office at (440) 775-8671.
