The Tang’s annual community open house, invites the public to the museum for a day full of art, art-making, food, music, and more in honor of the museum’s namesake. Frances Young Tang was a wife, mother, and 1961 Skidmore College graduate who died in 1992. In her memory, the Tang family made a substantial donation that led to the museum becoming a reality, opening in 2000. Frances Day honors Frances Young Tang’s legacy of creativity and philanthropy with a day of free activities.
The Tang Pattern Project celebrates the Museum’s 20th anniversary. Organized by Head of Design Jean Tschanz-Egger, past and current Tang Design Interns created patterns inspired by the Museum’s exhibition and event history.
