Dec 9 - Cass Gilbert and the Allen Memorial Art Museum in Context
December 9 (Tuesday, 2:30 p.m.) How does the Allen fit within the context of American master architect Cass Gilbert's career? Patricia Murphy, executive director of the Oberlin Heritage Center, presents a brief biographical sketch of Gilbert (1859-1934), showcases some of his better and lesser known works, and provides a glimpse at Gilbert's ambitious and not entirely realized plans for Oberlin. This "Tea Talk" is sponsored by the Allen Memorial Art Museum with the Oberlin Heritage Center. Location: AMAM East Gallery.
