Branch Rickey, Jackie Robinson, and Winfred Rembert!
The Branch Rickey/Jackie Robinson week long celebration is drawing to a close, and the response has been impressive! Lots of visitors, lots of receptions....but there's still time to come in and peruse all the artwork before the February 20th ending. Click on the link above to see lots of great photos from all the festivities all over campus!
We have had special group visits from OWU's Early Childhood Center, as well as Willowbrook Retirement Community. Many of the visitors have especially enjoyed the colorful paintings on leather by Winfred Rembert. Our Humphries Gallery (front lobby) has a special grouping from the museum's Permanent Collection: artwork by African-American artists, highlighting their talents for 2 months including Black History month.
Don't forget, the Ross Museum is free, and open to everyone! We're open late on Thursdays (until 9:00pm) and on Sunday afternoons! (1:00 - 5:00pm)
