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.

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.

I've known about this small museum on the Vassar campus for quite some time, but never stopped in until this past weekend. The 20th century art was the surprise. I did not expect to see several Picasso paintings, Matisse, Leger, Ernst, Matta, O'Keefe, Balthus (with a cat, of course), Delauney, Lichtenstein, and a wonderful Jackson Pollock, and 2 Calder mobiles....
