Found the school and the museum to be phenomenal How ofter do you find a museum at a college. The museum had a good representation of student pieces. The grounds and buildings of the school were beautiful even on an early Spring snowy day. Definitely worth visiting, especially if you are on a college tour.

Over the years, I have been viewing the exhibitions at this museum on the Bard Campus. Each show is artfully curated, well installed, and features world class and mid career artists. Additionally, the shows are intelligent and challenge viewers. Do not miss.

The Museum is beautiful and deserves a serious art exhibit. We felt the current exhibitions to be unworthy of the surroundings.

Don't miss this place hidden away at Bard--the permanent collection has a surprising number of good pieces and the changing exhibitions often feature world class artists.
