The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center presents 150 Years Later: New Photography by Tina Barney, Tim Davis and Katherine Newbegin open through May 27, 2011.

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—now the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center. Beginning January 20, visitors may view the newly re-opened Art Center with a re-installation of the permanent collection, including galleries dedicated to the founding collection featuring Hudson River School works from the Magoon Collection, acquired by Matthew Vassar. In honor of the Sesquicentennial, the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center commissioned three photographers to create new works that highlight different aspects of campus life. The resulting works will be on view in the exhibition 150 Years Later: New Photography by Tina Barney, Tim Davis and Katherine Newbegin.

The exhibition, curated by Mary-Kay Lombino, the Emily Hargroves Fisher ’57 and Richard B. Fisher Curator and Assistant Director for Strategic Planning at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, will be on view through March 27.
