Edna St. Vincent Millay
Feb. 2, 2017
Acclaimed poet Edna St. Vincent Millay, class of 1917, came to represent the modern, liberated woman of the Jazz Age, free of the restrictions of the past. A special Vassar exhibition honoring the 100th anniversary of Millay’s graduation and the 125th anniversary of her birth offers intimate glimpses into her life. Edna St. Vincent Millay: Treasures From Steepletop is on view through June 11 in the Thompson Memorial Library and the Art Library.

A stuffed loon, an invitation to the 1879 Vassar Commencement, some carved African masks, a wallaby skeleton, and a softball trophy. These items, and many more eclectic pieces from the college’s past and present, are what you get when you bring renowned visual artist Mark Dion to the college and have him lead an American and Environmental Studies class on a campus-wide treasure hunt.
