DESCRIPTION

Since it opened at the College in 1975, the Visual Arts Museum showed work by artists such as Willem de Kooning, Mark de Suvero, Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein, Agnes Martin, Robert Motherwell, Isamu Noguchi, Robert Rauschenberg, Saul Steinberg, Cy Twombly, and Andy Warhol.

The museum was best known for having held SVA's Masters Series--annual award exhibitions honoring great visual communicators of our time. Since its inception in 1988, the College conferred the Masters Series Award to Marshall Arisman, Saul Bass, Ivan Chermayeff, Seymour Chwast, Paul Davis, Lou Dorfsman, Heinz Edelmann, Jules Feiffer, Shigeo Fukuda, Milton Glaser, April Greiman, Steven Heller, George Lois, Mary Ellen Mark, Ed McCabe, Duane Michals, Tony Palladino, Paul Rand, Paula Scher, Deborah Sussman, George Tscherny and Massimo Vignelli.

For thirty-five years the museum, brought the work of some of the most significant figures in contemporary fine and applied arts directly to SVA's students. This tradition lives on at the Visual Arts Gallery where the work of prominent artists, photographers, designers and illustrators is exhibited every fall.
