Thursday, April 3, 2014 at 5:00pm to 8:00pm

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

Fred '74 and Laura Ruth Bidwell will discuss their joint passion for collecting art and their creation of the Transformer Station, a platform for emerging and mid-career artists located in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood. The venue hosts contemporary art exhibitions, events, and music. Bidwell is interim director of the Cleveland Museum of Art. Laura Bidwell was the founding curator of Akron’s Summit ArtSpace Gallery and is an established mixed-media artist, photographer, and videographer.

During these special hours, the museum galleries will remain open until 8 pm, and as always, will be free and open to the public.

All museum galleries will be open for you to revisit old favorites, explore the new installations, discover new works, listen to our audio tours, or browse through our collection catalog. AMAM staff and student docents will be on hand to answer questions and chat with you about the museum's holdings.
