This Friday is Community Arts and Culture Day! Discover the Arts and Culture of the Renaissance! On Friday, October 12, from 11am until 3pm elementary school-age children, and their adult chaperones, can travel across the “city-state” of ’Oberlandia.’ All events are free and open to all members of the public!
At the Oberlin Public Library (65 South Main Street), library staff will lead activities to create ‘stained glass’ windows, and America Reads volunteers will distribute books free of charge.
The Oberlin Heritage Center (73 1/2 South Professor Street) will exercise young minds and bodies with mini=activities and crafts about the great late-Renaissance scientist and teacher Galileo, and play schoolyard games, most of which date to before the Renaissance.
The Firelands Association for the Visual Arts (FAVA) (39 South Main Street) will hold mask-making activities in their second-floor studio space.
And the Allen Memorial Art Museum (87 North Main Street) will offer art activities including embossing, triptych making, and creating works inspired by Joan Miró.
Visit each location during Community Arts and Culture Day to gather all four symbols that make up the ancient crest of Oberlandia. When you have all four parts assembled, you can decorate the crest and submit it to a location staff member to be entered into a raffle drawing. Generous prizes from each organization will be collected to make up the raffle prize! Hope to see you then!
