“Unusually well curated wide-ranging museum in Hudson Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

Smaller than its downriver counterparts Dia Beacon and Storm King Art Center, the Loeb makes a third major art destination for your weekend. Anchored by Vassar College founder Matthew Vassar's (1861) excellent collection of Hudson River landscape painters (of which part is always on display), the Loeb represents many generations of good curation and donation by Vassar's noted art faculty and its cosmopolitan alumnae/i: there's lots of modern art, masterworks, Asian and other ceramics. Until early June 2012 a terrific exhibition on Gothic Spaces of France, with the latest amazing high-tech gadgetry to put you right inside 3 major cathedrals. Go!

“Plesantly Surprised!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

Amazing collection of art at Vassar College. We were surprised at the number of very well known artists who were in this collection. Only need about 30 minutes to tour the center.

“Excellent small museum on a beautiful campus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

The museum has an interesting collection that is not overwhelming. The Vassar campus itself is just lovely, and you can spend a pleasant afternoon walking through the Shakespeare Garden, around the lake, and enjoying the quad.
