Yager Museum of Art and Culture at Hartwick College

The Yager features permanent and changing exhibitions of fine art, archaeology and ethnography, with collections ranging from ancient artifacts of the Upper Susquehanna's first human inhabitants to contemporary art. Among the collection's strengths are North and South American ethnography, Renaissance art, American Impressionism and Andy Warhol. In addition to being a center for exploration of our artistic, archaeological, ethnographical, historical and cultural heritage, the Museum serves as an experiential learning lab for Hartwick students and visitors alike.
