An Oberlin College tradition since 1940, Art Rental invites students to live with an original work of art (or two) for a semester for a charge of just $5 per work. The Art Rental collection has about 400 works from which to choose.
Art Rental takes place on a first-come, first-served basis each semester. Students must hold their own place in the line, which forms in the courtyard outside the back doors of the museum (north side, off Lorain Street). Students may line up at the bottom of the entrance ramp; please do not block the door.
Beginning at 8 a.m., students will be admitted to Art Rental in groups of five. Oberlin College faculty and staff also may rent works but, like students, must hold their own place in line.
A maximum of two works may be rented. Please have a valid Oberlin College ID card and cash or check ready. No credit cards are accepted.
The cost is $5 per work.
