30/160 Anniversary Celebration at the Loeb
The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Vassar College
The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Celebrates 30 Years and a Continuing Legacy
When the doors first opened to the public in November 1993 of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, named after the then Vassar trustee, the local and national headlines highlighted the construction of a “world-class art museum” to house the College’s already “exceptional art collection.” The new building offered considerably more room and improved conditions to view Vassar’s art treasures, which had been, by that point, collected since its founding about 130 years before—the first college in the United States to include an art museum as part of its original mission.
Join us to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, 160 years of the collection, and the official launch of our new collection catalogue Making & Meaning. Copies of the book will be available for sale. Several contributors will be present. Refreshments will be served.
Free and open to all.
