Eric Lindbloom published a number of books of his work, and exhibited in many galleries both locally and in other parts of the United States. He was the husband of former Vassar English Professor Nancy Willard. Other local artists who will participate in the online program include Monica Church, Michele Burgess, Bill Kelly, and Sasha Bush. Their remarks will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
Ronald Patkus, Associate Director of the Libraries for Special Collections, said the College was grateful to have received the collection of Lindbloom’s work. ““We’re thrilled to receive this donation,” Patkus said. “Eric was a longtime member of the Vassar community, and the collection not only expands our holdings of Eric’s work but also provides important documentation of, and perspective on, the Hudson Valley.”
