On a snowy day in February 2008 eighty-six works from the permanent collection of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College left Poughkeepsie for a ten-month five-city tour of Japan. The Yamagata Museum of Art partnered with the Art Center to organize “Paris-New York: Modern Paintings in 19th and 20th Century. Masterworks from the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, New York”.

On April 5, 2006, we reached Jenny Holzer in Dublin where she was busy doing light projections of Beckett’s prose and poetry in honor of his 100th birthday (at Trinity College, the General Post Office, Mansion House, the Clarence Hotel, and other locations). She’s since moved on to London where she’s projecting Beckett, and a number of other poets, onto Sir Norman Foster's City Hall, Sommerset House, the Barbican Center, Senate House and St. Paul's.
