For Faculty

The museum is a lab

Since opening in 2000 the Tang Museum has presented a series of major interdisciplinary exhibitions originated and co-curated by Skidmore faculty.

How to develop an exhibition at the Tang

The museum is a performance space

Beginning with the Tang’s inaugural season, Skidmore faculty members have collaborated to bring to life the interdisciplinary spirit of the museum through unique performances created specifically for Tang exhibitions.

The museum is a classroom

For both students and faculty, the Tang is a space that embraces discourse and exploration. The museum supports Skidmore faculty as a rich learning resource through exhibitions and the collection.

Reading and Responding to Exhibitions

Exhibitions at the Tang are open to the scholarly interests of professors and students from all disciplines — sciences, humanities, the arts.

See how Skidmore faculty use the museum as a classroom.

Interpreting Objects

Teaching in the Tang Museum — reading, responding and interpreting the exhibitions and collections — told through the voices of Skidmore faculty.

Read more on the Faculty Voices page.

Class Visits to the Collection

Classes from all disciplines at Skidmore may reserve the Kettlewell Print Study Room and Permanent Collections Storage Area. Faculty interested in viewing objects should contact Tang staff at least two weeks in advance to plan their visit. Public access to these areas is also available by appointment.

A portion of the collection is also available to the Skidmore community through ARTstor.
