Tang Museum

The Tang is a national model for learning with museums. A distinctive part of the Skidmore experience, the Tang’s role as a laboratory for undergraduate exploration and creativity is second to none. Faculty, students, our regional community, and visitors from around the world experience dynamic collections, inspiring artworks, and innovative performances and programs every year.

Why Now?

  • Developing challenging and inspirational exhibitions takes expertise and resources. A dedicated, permanent source of funding is critical to ensure the Tang retains and enhances its position as a model for innovation
  • New financial resources will allow the Tang to thrive and grow, introducing new generations of students and faculty to exhibitions, programs, and opportunities


  • Build the Tang’s endowment to $25+ million by its 20th anniversary in 2020
  • Acquire works that support the exhibition program and expand teaching possibilities
  • Support interdisciplinary exhibitions and programs
