Shared Art: Michelangelo Lovelace

August 10 - December 23, 2022
In Education Hallway

The Shared Art program brings together incoming students to begin their Oberlin journey by engaging with the perspectives of their peers through a single artwork. The work for the class of 2026, Michelangelo Lovelace’s These Urban City Streets, will move beyond the AMAM’s walls through programs, conversations, and trips into Cleveland this fall. Sharing art is a way of understanding this place, one’s peers, and oneself.

This year’s Shared Art work was selected by Trevor Balsely ’24, Katie Baum ’25, Nova Gomez ’25, Sagana Ondande ’23, and Nathan Carpenter ’20, former Director of Academic Peer Advising.
