The Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery
The Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery is recognized as one of the region's foremost spaces in which to experience the achievements of internationally renowned artists and art movements of yesterday and today. Housed in a former church in the medieval-revival style, the Gallery is host to five to six exhibitions a year, with loans from major national and regional art museums, galleries, and collectors. Exhibitions cover a wide range of periods and mediums, including medieval manuscripts, Renaissance prints, Japanese woodcuts, and Pop Art, as well as installations, drawings, and paintings by important contemporary artists and LVC faculty.
Exhibitions are made possible by the The Friends of the Gallery, the Gallery's membership group, as well as other generous sponsors.

During the nineteenth century there was increased European interest in exotic cultures, such as African and South Pacific cultures, and a new form of tourism was created. Financial stability allowed the European upper-class to travel to colonized countries, and a vigorous market for tourist trade objects was created. ‘Selections from the Permanent Collection’ will serve as an informative survey of the various tourist trade objects within the permanent collection of the Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery at Lebanon Valley College. The exhibition, featuring Inuit, African, Asian, and European art, will open at the gallery on July 3, 2014.
