The art center itself is of modern architecture and looks great juxtaposed to Vassar's beautiful traditional campus. So many interesting works of art, from hundreds of years ago to the present, something for everyone, an eclectic collection. We had a great afternoon taking our time strolling through the art center.

When traveling I always like to walk college campuses. Vassar is beautiful, and their art museum is stellar. Significant breadth of content, helpful docents, photos allowed, and a website of downloadable images. A great way to spend a few hours!

The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie NY is a lot more than a teaching museum. Housed in a 36,000 sq ft circa 1993 César Pelli building, the Art Center exhibits a rotating selection of over 19,000 works of art. The "Project Gallery" displays works of art requested by faculty members for their classes. A dozen... More

We visited here one Friday afternoon earlier this month. Definitely worth a little time to check out the variety of art on display.

An impressive gallery in sleepy Poughkeepsie. The gallery is free to the public and you can easily spend an afternoon viewing the permanent exhibits in addition to the visiting exhibits. I've never experienced a crowd which makes the experience that much better.

We went to a lecture at the Art Center and it was spacious. Staff was friendly, I recommend visiting for the content and the grounds of this nice University.

The museum is small, however the collection is grand! Works by 20th century masters plus a collection of Hudson River School artists.

You are overwhelmed by the amazing collection in this small, free museum on the campus of beautiful Vassar College. Different rooms with different periods of art from religious; Hudson River; pop art; modern. Major artists including Calder, Okeefe, Picasso, Dali, Stella to name only a few. Christina, a docent, gave a very interesting tour. The museum is closed on Mondays... More

A visit to the Vassar campus and the Powerhouse Theatre is always rewarding. It gives us an opportunity to see many plays in development before they later appear on Broadway and off-Broadway stages. Significant playwrights including John Patrick Shanley (who debuted his Pulitzer-Prize winning play, Doubt, at Powerhouse) bring their works to the Vassar campus. A little known fact is... More
