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

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

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.

A hidden jewel. Rembrandt, Breughel the younger, Jackson Pollock, Lichtenstein, Georgia O'Keeffe, etc. This is a fascinating smorgasbord of stellar artwork. It was also nice to stroll the beautiful Quad at Vassar.
