The Ohio University Alumni Association is proud to host the first ever “On the Green Weekend,” taking place May 30—June 1. On the Green is a sister event to the annual Homecoming festivities and focuses on academics and the arts at OHIO.
Art-related programs and events will be ongoing throughout the weekend. One event includes an exhibit that highlights Ohio University’s Chillicothe Campus and the impact it has had on the southeast Ohio region. The exhibit will be on display in Trisolini Gallery in Baker University Center from 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. and features a quilt made by the children of the campus’s Child Development Center, a video highlighting the campus’s role in the region and other pieces.
On Friday, May 30 alumni can take in a performance of “Lend Me a Tenor” by Ohio University Lancaster Campus’s performing arts department. The 7:30 p.m. show will be held at Baker University Center Theatre. Admission is free.
On Saturday, May 31 OUAA hosts the On the Green Weekend’s OHIO Film Fest at the Athena Cinema on Court Street. Join other Bobcats from 3 p.m.- 5 p.m. to watch documentary films by Ohio University filmmakers, including: “Where’s the Fair”, a documentary about the World’s Fair; “OHIO Women: 1940—2010” and “The 1900: Voices from the Athens Asylum.” “The Longest Day”, based on the 1959 history book of the same name by Cornelius Ryan, will be screened at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. at the Athena Cinema. University Libraries Curator of Manuscripts Doug McCabe will provide a talk back after the 9 a.m. screening. The Ohio University Libraries' Cornelius Ryan Collection includes about 21,000 primary sources Ryan accumulated for several books he wrote about World War II, including The Longest Day, a best-selling account of D-Day.
