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.

  • Exhibition: Asian Art at Vassar
    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: Gordon Parks: The Making of an Argument
    10:00 AM to 5:00 PM - Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Temporary Exhibition Galleries Gordon Parks was one of America’s most significant social photographers, filmmakers, and writers of the twentieth century, and the first African-American photographer to work for Life magazine. In 1948, he began a professional relationship with Life that would last twenty-two years when he proposed a series of pictures about the gang wars that were then plaguing Harlem. Parks gained the trust of one group of gang members and their leader Red Jackson, producing photographs of them that are artful, emotive, poignant, and sometimes shocking. From this body of work, twenty-one pictures were selected for the photo essay. The exhibition comprises forty-five prints alongside contact sheets, issues of the original publication, and related ephemera that provide context for the images and shed light on the editorial process.The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Temporary Exhibition Gallery
