Exhibit at Oberlin

If you live in northern or central Ohio and enjoy religious art, you really should visit the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College to view the exhibit, "Religion, Ritual & Performance in the Renaissance."  There are 80 works, mostly sacred, some secular, from the collections of the Yale University Art Gallery and the Allen museum.  Many of the pieces once served as altar pieces, devotional items, etc.  The exhibit runs through June 30, 2013 and is free to the public.  For full information, click HERE.
