The Tang Teaching Museum collection is central to the museum’s mission of object-based learning. We are regularly adding artworks and stories to the online collection, and welcome your comments. Check back often!
Students in the Skidmore College gender studies course “Lived Feminism: Engagement and Praxis” examine artwork from the collection to discuss how political messages are presented and how “effectiveness” can be defined in conveying such messages. Later in the semester students create posters to share their own political messages with the Skidmore community.
Inspired by the exhibition 3-D Doings: The Imagist Object in Chicago Art, 1964-1980
The Tang Pattern Project celebrates the Museum’s 20th anniversary. Organized by Head of Design Jean Tschanz-Egger, past and current Tang Design Interns created patterns inspired by the Museum’s exhibition and event history.
