Offered by most departments for academic credit, field work enables students to examine the way the theories and the practical experiences of a particular discipline interact. It provides opportunities for observation and participation which are not ordinarily available in classwork. Depending on their academic interests, students undertake internships in a variety of organizations and agencies in the local community and other places.

    10:00 AM to 5:00 PM - Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Project Gallery Exhibition: Asian Art at VassarThe first gifts of Asian art came to Vassar in 1917 when Charles M. Pratt, then Chairman of the Board of Trustees, made a donation of jade objects from China. In recent decades, the collection has grown thanks to gifts and purchases comprising a wide range of works from countries across Asia. Among the highlights on display are a page of sketches created in India around 1825 depicting a Rajput king, a sixteenth-century Chinese scroll entitled The Palace of the Nine Accomplishments, and a Tibetan painting on fabric, One Thousand Buddhas. Recent acquisitions from Japan are also exhibited, including a folding screen with farming scenes by Kano Eino and an energetic ink painting of men taming horses by the Edo-period artist Soga Shohaku. Also on view in the Landing Gallery from mid-October to mid-December are contemporary Japanese photographs from the permanent collection, including works by Kunié Sugiura, Michiko Kon, and Naoya Hatakeyama.The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Focus Gallery
  • Exhibition: Punctuating Space: The Prints and Multiples of Richard Artschwager
    10:00 AM to 5:00 PM - Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Temporary Exhibition Galleries Exhibition: Punctuating Space: The Prints and Multiples of Richard Artschwager. This summer the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center presents the work of the contemporary American master Richard Artschwager (1923–2013). Both a sculptor and painter, Artschwager was a singular artist whose provocative work straddles pop, minimalism, and conceptual art. Artschwager extended his enigmatic approach to prints and multiples as well, completing a compelling body of over 100 editioned works. In his prints, as in his paintings, Artschwager explored grisaille tonalities, now in black and white etching, lithography, and screenprint. His experiments with industrial materials in his astounding body of multiples often serve to further his themes. Encompassing the hand-drawn and the fabricated, Artschwager’s prints and multiples remain a critically acclaimed but under-recognized body of work. This exhibition is the first devoted to his challenging oeuvre in these mediums. The exhibition is supported by the Friends of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Exhibition Fund.The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Temporary Exhibition GalleriesSunday 1-5pm; Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat 10-5pm; Thur 10-9pm
