Founded in 1917, the Allen Memorial Art Museum (AMAM) is recognized today as one of the five best college and university art museums in the United States. Since its beginning, the museum has always been free for everyone. Collections including paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, prints, drawings, and photographs are housed in an impressive Italian Renaissance-style building designed by Cass Gilbert and named after Dudley Peter Allen, a distinguished 1875 graduate of Oberlin College. Allen and his wife, Elisabeth Severance Allen, (later Prentiss) were the museum's principal benefactors.

Outstanding musical conversation between two rare and gifted artists. At times the musical ideas appeared telepathic. The gallery makes for a perfect setting for quiet acoustic performances; particularly across this timbre (arch top guitar, acoustic bass). Very happy that I was there to experience this performance!

Jim's talk was great, and was excited to see how the resources of the Museum can be incorporated into courses beyond the arts.
