Today’s the day! Students are encouraged to line up early for an opportunity to take home one of the 75 works that are part of Roommate: Living with Tang Art, the Tang’s art loan program. Works will be taken home on a first-come first-served basis. Skidmore students will be allowed to make their selections when the doors open at 9 am, though we suggest lining up early for a good spot in line. (In 2021, the line was full by 8:45 am, though students began lining up the night before at 9 pm.) In order to ensure your spot, once you line up you may not leave your place for longer than five minutes.

Students must bring their Skidmore IDs with them in order to borrow art work.

This event is free and open to Skidmore students.
