Otterbein has a number of spaces to present a wide array of art. The Frank Museum of Art houses the university's collection of art from Africa, Japan, and New Guinea. The museum is located at 39 S. Vine St. in Westerville, in the former "church house" of Lillian Frank who taught at Otterbein for 29 years in the areas of art, theology, and philosophy. Particular strengths of the collection include pottery from Africa and New Guinea, 19th century Japanese woodcut prints, and African textiles and sculpture. Gallery space includes both the Miller Gallery (Art and Communication building, 33 Collegeview Road) and Fisher Gallery (Roush Hall, 27 S. Grove St.). These spaces explore a broad range of approaches to art, and introduce the University community to contemporary work.
