The museum is a performance space

Beginning with the Tang’s inaugural season, Skidmore faculty members have collaborated to bring to life the interdisciplinary spirit of the museum through unique performances created specifically for Tang exhibitions.
Anchor name: Classroom

The museum is a classroom

For both students and faculty, the Tang is a space that embraces discourse and exploration. The museum supports Skidmore faculty as a rich learning resource through exhibitions and the collection.

Reading and Responding to Exhibitions

Exhibitions at the Tang are open to the scholarly interests of professors and students from all disciplines — sciences, humanities, the arts.

See how Skidmore faculty use the museum as a classroom.
