Can a single work of art build community?

The annual Shared Art Program brings together all incoming Oberlin College and Conservatory students by using a single artwork as the starting point for conversations about who we are and where we have come from. The Shared Art Committee selected this work for its ability to foster conversations about familial connection and to foreground Indigenous rights.

Shared Art Committee members: Max Andrejco (OC 2025), Katie Baum (OC 2025), Meera Bhatia (OC 2024), Bryn Kearney (OC 2025), Cecil Pulley (OC 2024), and Carter Cooper (OC 2022), Manager of Academic Peer Advising.
