Founded at Oberlin College in 1917, the Allen has strong holdings in 17th century Dutch and Flemish art, Japanese woodblock prints, and 20th century works by such artists as Cézanne, Chagall, Picasso, Monet, and others. In the galleries you’ll find artworks from virtually every culture and time period, which are drawn from the Allen’s collection of more than 15,000 objects. The original museum building was designed by Cass Gilbert. The museum is located 45 minutes west of Cleveland at the intersection of Ohio routes 58 and 511.
