The last section of the “Museum for Oberlin” exhibition offers a selection of recent acquisitions that were presented to the AMAM as gifts-in-kind from donors or purchased with museum funds designated specifically for that purpose. Since general College funds have never been used to acquire art for the museum, Into the Future celebrates the generosity and foresight of the many donors who help the museum to continuously develop the collection. In addition to works that amplify existing collection strengths, the works on view showcase the growing holdings of photographs spanning the entire history of the medium, as well as twentieth-century art from Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe, and Japan. These artworks have already played a central role in inspiring innovative curricular approaches to teaching and learning and support a broad range of class visits across the College and Conservatory.
