Vassar College, Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center

The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center was founded in 1864 as the Vassar College Art Gallery. Vassar was the first college or university in the country to include an art museum as part of its original plan. The current 36,000 square foot facility was designed by Cesar Pelli and named in honor of the new building's primary donor Frances Lehman Loeb, a member of the Class of 1928. The collections of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center chart the history of art from antiquity to the present and comprise over 17,000 works. Art should "stand boldly forth as an educational force," declared founder Matthew Vassar.
