FIELD WORKOffered 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.

- Universal Collection: A Mark Dion Project
10:00 AM to 9:00 PM - Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Atrium Gallery Exhibition: Universal Collection: A Mark Dion Project In spring 2016, the Art Center will host Mark Dion as Vassar artist-in-residence. Dion is a New York and Pennsylvania-based visual artist known for his “cabinets of curiosities” that incorporate found objects into site-specific installations. Dion will co-teach a course with anthropology professor Anne Pike-Tay, culminating in a work comprised of items drawn from the collections of the Art Center, Special Collections, and Vassar College Artifacts Project. This wealth of resources includes materials as diverse as nineteenth-century scientific instruments, Native American objects, Vassariana, examples of taxidermy, sculpture, geological specimens, and antique books. Dion writes, “For me it is always a personal pleasure treasure hunting for projects. Certainly we will uncover things never suspected.”The exhibition is generously supported by the Creative Arts Across Disciplines initiative of Vassar College, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; the Ralph E. Ogden Foundation; and the Friends of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Exhibition Fund. Additional support provided by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA).Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Atrium Gallery
