Erica Wojcik on Glenn Ligon
Pattern by Monica Andrews '19
The Tang Pattern Project began in 2017 with research on cultural institutions’ branding by Design Intern Mallika Acharya ’18. It progressed into a collaboration organized by Head of Design Jean Tschanz-Egger with past and current Tang Design Interns to propose a Tang Museum branding refresh. Their new patterns draw inspiration from the Museum’s exhibition history.
