Bringing Fine art and performance to Southern Vermont

The Laumeister Art Center at Southern Vermont College is a comprehensive arts center featuring multiple galleries, a Covered Bridge Museum, art studios and a 315-seat proscenium theater.  Permanent galleries include paintings by Eric Sloane, wooden bird sculptures by Master Bird Carver Floyd Scholz, and a collection of Native American art and artifacts.

Located within 30 minutes of Troy,  New York;  Williamstown, Massachusetts;  and Manchester, Vermont, and just two miles from Bennington's scenic Main Street, the Laumeister Art Center is in an ideal location that makes it easy for visitors to explore and enjoy the natural and cultural arts in Southern Vermont. 

On December 11, 2017, Southern Vermont College accepted the donation of the Bennington Center for the Arts, offered by Bruce Laumeister and Elizabeth Small, his wife. The art center was renamed the Laumeister Art Center in their honor.
