The Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts with Frank O. Gehry’s highly sculptural exterior is located on the campus of Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, about 200 km north of New York City. It is an amazing achievement for this small liberal arts college with 1450 students to build a world-class performing arts center that cost them $60 million. This vision of making Annanadale an international destination for music-lovers came from Dr. Leon Botstein, the president of Bard College since 1975.
