Allen Memorial Art Museum
87 North Main Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Some of the museum’s most important Japanese woodblock prints are featured in a current exhibition that recently traveled to three venues in Japan. But who was Mary Ainsworth? And how did she develop such a fine collection? Kevin R. E. Greenwood, Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, answers these questions as he discusses recent discoveries about Ainsworth and her collection. A reception will follow and galleries remain open until 7:30 p.m.
