Tang Contemporaries

The Tang Contemporaries are young supporters of the museum—Skidmore alumni, past Tang interns, Student Advisory Council alumni, and fans of art and museums. With a $50+ annual donation, members receive email invitations to an annual New York City art party, an October fall meeting and opening at the Tang, and occasional events hosted by the Tang Contemporaries Advisory Council. Members also receive a 10 percent discount on Tang publications. Join today!
Tang Contemporaries are current and future supporters of the museum. Your support provides essential funding for educational and community outreach and furthers the mission of the Tang Museum as an innovative college teaching museum.

Why join?

My journey at the Tang, and my professional journey at large, started when I worked as an Exhibitions Assistant on the Alma Thomas exhibition during my junior year at Skidmore. The Tang provided me with the skills, mentorship, and network that enabled me to work at institutions and companies like the Whitney Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and Artsy.⁠

My experience is not unique among those who worked at Tang. The Tang has cultivated a generation of Skidmore alumni working in galleries, museums, and auction houses and as practicing artists and art historians who all consider the museum as foundational to their professional and personal experiences.⁠

It is with great thanks to the Tang community that I now serve as the co-chair of the Tang Contemporaries Advisory Council (TCAC), a subset of the newly formed group for young supporters, the Tang Contemporaries. The Tang Contemporaries, open to anyone under age 40 (or so!), serves to cultivate passionate young alums and other supporters living and working across the globe to provide strategic support to the Tang. We aim to further the Tang’s mission through guidance, philanthropy, and advocacy, and promote the Tang’s presence throughout the broader art community.

Many of the Tang Contemporaries events are organized by an appointed subgroup called the Tang Contemporaries Advisory Council. The co-chairs of the group are Emily Manges ’16 and Alec Unkovic ’12.
