Vassar College in Poughkeepsie was the first college or university in the United States to include an art museum in its original plan. The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center is a combination of two buildings, a new museum designed by architect Cesar Pelli and a Gothic building, the Taylor-Van Ingen Hall, that was part of the original campus. A lush sculpture garden completes the center. In addition to galleries, the center also has storage for the 21,000-piece strong art collection which includes important works across multiple time periods from Europe, America

The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center is located at 124 Raymond Ave, Poughkeepsie, NY 12603
