From Appalachia to Japan, New York to Brazil, Otterbein’s dynamic exhibition schedule features local and global artists, and more than six shows annually.
Exhibitions at Otterbein University
Otterbein University’s Museum & Galleries bring the best of visual arts to central Ohio. With four major exhibition spaces, we can champion emerging artists, feature the art of internationally renowned creatives, and give public access to our permanent art collection. Our aesthetic, thematic, and regionally diverse shows integrate with Otterbein’s outstanding, interdisciplinary curriculum. Learn more by visiting our galleries and attending receptions, artist talks, and interdisciplinary symposia. All are welcome!
Otterbein’s 2021 – 2022 exhibition schedule focuses on deep listening practices and THE LAND (defined as the earth and all species, including plants, humans, and other-than-human beings). We take the words of Mi’kmaq Elder Albert Marshall (Eskasoni community, Unama’ki, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia) as our starting point: “No being is more or less important than any other being.” We are inspired to listen in new ways and to seek answers from THE LAND, itself. Rather than asking what we can ‘do’ with THE LAND, we might ask, “What can we offer?, What actions will invite greater diversity?, How can all beings thrive, rather than just survive?” This programming recognizes the important confluence of social justice and climate change work.
