Author Linda Nochlin ‘51 gave a lecture entitled “Why Contemporary Art is Great: Two Women, One Man,” to a packed room of people from the Vassar College and the wider Poughkeepsie community. She spoke about artists Jenny Saville, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Robert Gober. She was then honored as the twelfth-ever President’s Distinguished Visitor since 1982, a title given to alumni who make extraordinary achievements.
