Tour of the Vincent Price Art Museum
   
Join us for a tour of the Vincent Price Museum with Penn, Dartmouth & MIT. Vincent Price was Yale Class of 1933. Event is currently sold out. Please sign up on the Waitlist to be told whether there are any available spots available.

The Vincent Price Art Museum (VPAM) has had a presence on this campus for more than fifty years. In 1951, Vincent Price—noted actor, collector and one of Los Angeles’s great champions of the arts—made his first visit to ELAC. As he got to know ELAC, Mr. Price noticed a lack of opportunity for students on this campus–and in East LA in general–to have first-hand experiences with art.

The Prices took the initiative to remedy this shortcoming and donated 90 pieces from their personal collection in 1957 to establish the first “teaching art collection” housed at a community college. In recognition of this extravagant gift, ELAC renamed the art gallery in the Prices’ honor.

Over the past 50 years, the collection has grown to more than 9,000 objects, and more than 100 shows have been mounted here. The range is impressive and eclectic, much like the Prices’ own collecting interest in world art; African, Mesoamerican, Native American and European artworks have all been exhibited here. 

After the tour: A short talk on Price's days at Yale will be presented by Lucy Chase Williams ('77), author of "The Complete Films of Vincent Price" and scriptwriter of the A&E BIOGRAPHY tribute, "Vincent Price: The Versatile Villain."
