The Fisher Center at Bard’s adventurous programs and world-class facilities, designed by Frank Gehry,  provide an outstanding environment in which to create, perform, learn, and experience.

The Center bears the name of Richard B. Fisher, a man of deep intellectual curiosity, an enlightened patron of the arts, and the former chair of Bard’s Board of Trustees. This magnificent building and the extraordinary arts experiences that take place within it are a tribute to his vision, generosity, and leadership.
