The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center is open on a revised schedule. Read more about hours and visiting and see VassarTogether for the College’s Spring 2021 plans and policies.

Past Exhibition

American Stories 1800–1950

When: January 29 - April 17, 2016

About the Show

The founding strength of the art museum at Vassar College in 1864 was its American paintings. That collection has grown greatly over the years with the result that a number of the works by major American painters are seldom seen. This exhibition will explore some of the American riches found in storage and will feature key works of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries housed in the Art Center's vault. Among the artists featured are John Singleton Copley, Benjamin West, Sanford Gifford, George Inness, William Merritt Chase, Maxfield Parrish, Arthur B. Davies, Robert Henri, Ernest Lawson, Arthur Dove, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Ben Shahn.

The exhibition is supported by the Friends of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Exhibition Fund.
