Today’s the day! Students are encouraged to line up early for an opportunity to take home one of the fifty works that are part of Roommate: Living with Tang Art, the Tang’s art loan program. Works will be taken home on a first-come first-served basis. Skidmore students will be allowed to make their selections when the doors open at 9 am, though we suggest lining up early for a good spot in line. (In 2020, students began lining up at 2:30 am, and the line was full by 6 am.)

Students must bring their Skidmore IDs with them in order to borrow art work.

This event is free and open to Skidmore students.
