Tang Announces Opening of Hyde Cabinet #14
On view now through Dec. 5 at the Tang Teaching Museum is the student curatorial project “Hyde Cabinet #14: Con todos estos líos: confronting the demons of US history,” organized by Heidi Birch ’22. The exhibition presents a work from the Tang collection, Enrique Chagoya’s “Return to Goya No. 9,” which provokes conversation about the persistence of racism in the United States.

Parking on campus
Campus Safety is now issuing fines for parking violations. Students, faculty, and staff are reminded that parking is only permitted in authorized parking spots (identified by white or yellow lines on either side of the parking space). Parking is not permitted over pavement markings such as those with hazard markings (parallel diagonal lines), at the end of a row of cars where there are no parking lines on both sides of your car, on the grass, on sidewalks or crosswalks, in the roadway, or in any no-parking zones. Parking in any of these areas may result in your car being ticketed. Receiving three tickets qualifies your car to be “booted.” If you cannot find an authorized parking space in your preferred parking lot, you will need to move to another lot. Please check the campus map to identify alternative lots that meet your needs.
The Skidmore Shop team is looking forward to Celebration Weekend, Oct. 15-17. Shop hours that weekend will be 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.
