Spotlight Series was created by Monica Andrews ’19, an Art History major and Studio Art minor at Skidmore College. Monica was involved at the Tang Teaching Museum between the fall of 2017 and the summer of 2019 and was the 2018-2019 Meg Reitman Jacobs ’63 Endowed Intern. The Meg Reitman Jacobs Internship is a one-year, pre-professional internship for a Skidmore junior or senior in the Tang Museum’s Education Department. As the Jacobs Intern, Monica worked with College and Public Programs, assisting with the organization, planning, and execution of events. The year-long project, Spotlight Series, explored rarely seen works from the Tang collection through single object tours that facilitated open conversations surrounding the artwork, artist, and issues addressed by the object. The Spotlight Series will continue throughout the summer led by Tang summer students.
