Skidmore College student Eliza Mittelstead ’18 leads a tour of the museum as part of the Tang Guide program. Learn all about the Tang Teaching Museum from a student intimately connected to the history and workings of the Tang. Exhibitions on view are Affinity Atlas, Machine Project — The Platinum Collection (Live by Special Request), Liz Collins: Energy Field and Dismantling the House.
The Tang Guides program is a volunteer opportunity that allows Skidmore students from across campus to be involved in the Tang Teaching Museum, to learn about museum education, and to develop the skills needed to lead public tours. After a series of training workshops, students become part of the Tang Guides team and are asked to lead public tours of the museum throughout their time at Skidmore. The program is developed and directed by Museum Educator for Public and College Programs Megan Hyde.
