|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.
