Webinar: The Cause of Art is the Cause of the People

Webinar: The Cause of Art is the Cause of the People

Thursday, March 18, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. - 4:15 p.m.

Annie Storr ’75, resident scholar at Brandeis University, presents "The Cause of Art is the Cause of the People: Ellen Gates Starr at Oberlin College." For nearly a century, Oberlin College and Chicago’s famous Hull House Settlement shared countless points of intersection and common purpose. None left as lasting an impression on Oberlin and the Allen Memorial Art Museum as the week when Hull House co-founder, Ellen Gates Starr (1859-1940)—artist, activist, and lecturer—came to visit in the spring of 1917.

An audience Q&A moderated by Andria Derstine, John G. W. Cowles Director of the AMAM, will follow the talk. Free and open to all.
