The Hudson Valley Sights



Bard College Review

A winding tree-lined road leads to this small college of liberal arts and sciences. The beautiful 540-acre campus encompasses two Hudson River estates, parklike grounds and gardens, and wooded areas.

The free Center for Curatorial Studies, on the south end of the Bard campus, is known for cutting-edge exhibits of contemporary art. 845/758-7598. Wed.-Sun. 1-5.

Noted architect Frank Gehry designed Bard's extraordinary Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts. Brushed-stainless-steel panels, draped like massive ribbons over the roof and sides of the 108,000-square-foot performing-arts center, reflect the light and colors of the sky as well as the hilly surroundings. Tours are given daily at 2 most of the year. 845/758-7900. Tours $5.
