We heard you like babies, so we put some babies in our winter video, just for you!
“By making things out of trash and electronics, I can intervene in the flow and learn about what it means when we throw away electronics.” - Professor Julia Christensen
"Get as much sleep as you can, and enjoy every sandwich." On Tuesday during move-in, we asked Oberlin parents to impart advice to the class of 2017. (via OberlinCollege)
"It’s an educational farm, so we want to get as many students here as possible." - Brad Mezler, farm director at the George Jones Farm in Oberlin, Ohio.
Today on oberlin.edu, we’re featuring a beautiful photo of the violin-making process. Want a closer look? Watch this video on the Violin Society of America’s summer violin-making workshop at Oberlin. (via Oberlin College & Conservatory)
In addition to four new exhibitions on view this semester, we’ve also rotated several works onto view in the Ellen Johnson Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, including a new video artwork by Kalup Linzy.
The practice of Harlem-based artist Kalup Linzy spans video, performance, and music. In works that often confront issues of race, gender, and sexuality, Linzy takes center-stage and performs a variety of roles, frequently in drag. In Lollypop, Linzy and fellow artist Shaun Leonardo lip sync along with a 1933 blues tune, restaging the duet as a gay flirtation with Linzy’s characteristic melodramatic irony.
You can catch this video installation during this week’s First Thursday evening hours, and through the end of the semester.
Kalup Linzy (American, born 1977)
B&W, sound, 3:24 mins.
Collection of Driek (OC 1965) and Michael Zirinsky (OC 1964)
First Thursday hours are tonight from 5-8pm.
Study break: heart-warming poetry written by Obies, performed by Obies. Enjoy!

Yes, you can :) But you only need to watch it 2,600 times because it’s already December 5th! Here is Professor of Organ James David Christie ‘75 taking us on a tour of ALL the Oberlin organs (there are lots!).
