The Hudson Valley region is a hub for some of the finest arts and culture around, as these 2024 winners prove.

-Editor Pick-

College Art Museum

Francis Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College, Poughkeepsie

From inside The Loeb, you’d never guess it’s on a college campus. The art center’s assortment of work is vast, spanning paintings from local Hudson River School painters to internationally renowned greats such as Pablo Picasso and Georgia O’Keeffe. Rotating seasonal exhibits and a small sculpture garden round out the collection. (Plus, admission is free!)
