Collection available for viewing online
The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center announces a new online searchable database of all 19,000-plus objects in the collection, making the museum’s holdings available for viewing at any time.
The database, which can be found at emuseum.vassar.edu, allows users to explore the entire collection through searches by keyword, artist’s name, accession number or a variety of other search criteria. With eMuseum, users can search for works that are in storage as well as works currently on view in the galleries. Along with essential details about each object, such as title, artist, date, medium, dimensions and artist’s life dates, users can find information about how each object entered the collection, its exhibition history and its publication history.
Digital images are included for at least 60 percent of the objects, with more images being added on an ongoing basis.
Admission to the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center is free; the Art Center is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. For additional information, the public may call 845-437-5632 or visit fllac.vassar.edu.
