Interactions with Artists
One of the advantages of focusing on contemporary art, as the Tang does, is that we often have exhibiting artists visiting the museum. As often as possible, the Tang tries to arrange opportunities for students to meet these artists. Interactions range from gallery talks to classroom visits to informal dinners on Thursday nights.
Thursday Night Programming
The Tang stays open until 9PM on Thursdays during the school year to expand access to the museum, especially for students. Responsibility for many of the events on Thursday nights falls to students who organize, create, and facilitate a range of programs.
