The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center is free and open to all. The Loeb Art Center enhances and supports the College’s goals of leadership, scholarship, and integrative learning.

The Loeb achieves this through the preservation, documentation, interpretation, presentation, and development of its collections; and through a dynamic program of temporary exhibitions and educational activities aimed at diverse audiences. Art should stand “boldly forth as an educational force,” declared founder Matthew Vassar. His college was the country’s first to be founded with a gallery and teaching collection.


A stitched sampler with the text "This work, perhaps my friends may have/when I am silent in my grave/and which, when ever, you chance to see/may kind remembrance picture me/while on this glowing canvas stands/the labor of my youthful hands/no other care than this, I knew/But perseverance brought me through/Eliza Fisher, September 17, 1824"
