Lehman Art Center
Attached to the Henry Luce III Library, the Robert Lehman Art Center opened in 1995. The 2,300-square-foot gallery hosts a number of exhibits annually. In previous years, art history classes and architectural design classes have met in the seminar and viewing room in the building's lower level. Financial support for the art center came from the Robert Lehman Foundation, with special encouragement from Robin Lehman ’55, a well-known artist and filmmaker.
This Lehman schedule of exhibits includes many different mediums, and while it will likely be expanded as the year continues, the following is a list of shows already booked. Be sure to check back for updates.

The mission of the Robert Lehman Art Center (RLAC) is focused upon the convergence of high quality professional artists and their work with Brooks School students and the greater Brooks School community. We aim to engage students, teachers, employees, parents and alumni and their guests in the viewing, participation, understanding and benefit of all art forms, with a particular emphasis on visual art.
It is our hope that Brooks School students and alumni will engage in and build relationships with artists, and lead to both formal and informal mentorship opportunities beyond the physical walls of the campus.
The gallery is located in the center of campus, attached to the Luce Library. It is important that the space is accessible to the entire community, and its hours of operation coincide with class time; often exhibitions are presented in an interdisciplinary fashion for faculty in all departments to connect the work with their lessons.
