Walkway Talk: Vassar’s Hudson River School of American Paintings
May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
When the doors of Vassar College opened in 1865, it already possessed an enormous collection of Hudson River School of American Painting. On display in a specially-designed art gallery were hundreds of works by many of the movement’s leading artists, including Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, Frederic Church, Jasper Cropsey, and Sanford Robinson Gifford. Today, they can be viewed in an intimate suite of galleries at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, as well as in a new 3D Virtual Exhibition that will help to enhance our understanding and appreciation of these remarkable early depictions of the American landscape. Learn more about these works at this Walkway Talk, presented by Bart Thurber, the Anne Hendricks Bass Director of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center.
