I took this photograph more than a month ago and almost forgot about it. These are fallen forsythia blossoms.

Some Walls in Oberlin 22

The photographs in this and the last two posts are of the Allen Memorial Art Museum on the Oberlin College campus. The original building, on the left, was designed by Cass Gilbert in 1917. The addition, on the right, is by Robert Venturi, built in 1977. The Venturi addition is controversial around here and with alumni of the college. Some people call it the Purina Dog Chow addition. If you don’t remember what the old Purina Dog Chow packaging looked like, go here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1976-Vintage-ad-for-Purina-Cog-Chow-Beef-Bacon-Cheese-Dog-Food-060713-/400520359346?roken=cUgayN. Scroll down for two views of the original building from the front. If you’re ever in Oberlin, you must see this museum for its collections as well as its interior spaces. It is widely regarded as one of the five best college and university art museums in the United States, and admission is free.
