It was one year ago that the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center decided to keep its doors open late every Thursday night – and the response has been overwhelming!
Now, the Art Center wants to mark this anniversary with the campus and the community during a special "Late Night" from 5:00pm to 9:00pm on Thursday, January 31. Refreshments will be served and the Walker Family Band will perform string style folk music beginning at 6:00pm.
"We've been thrilled with the response to our Late Night event that we've received from the Vassar community and our surrounding communities, so we wanted to celebrate its success," said Art Center Director James Mundy. "These extended hours have given busy people a chance to appreciate all that the Art Center normally has to offer during the week, after their working day."
The Lehman Loeb's "Late Night" event even prompted The Poughkeepsie Journal to name the Art Center the "Most accessible museum for 9-to-5ers" recently.
Docents will provide informal tours of the current exhibition, Saul Steinberg: Illuminations. For more information on the exhibition, go to http://fllac.vassar.edu/current.html
The Art Center is always free and open to the public.
