Skidmore’s Tang Teaching Museum and Gallery is opening its doors this Saturday in honor of its namesake, the late Frances Young Tang, and you’re invited. There will be “music, art-making, gallery talks, snow cones and a photo booth so you can create your own keepsake.”
From noon to 1 PM there will be a performance by singer-songwriter MaryLeigh Roohan; from noon to 5 PM there will be a Scavenger hunt for “the young and young at heart”; from 1 to 4 PM a drop-in art activity inspired by Kay Rosen’s Wanderful! (left), part of the I was a double exhibit; from 2:30 to 3:30 PM there’s an improve songwriting event led by Michael Eck; from 4:30 to 5:30 PM there will be artist talks in the galleries; and from 5:30 to 7 PM there’s a public reception.
It’s worth mentioning again that the Tang is celebrating the opening of six new exhibits in its galleries (and elevator), so there is much to see, hear and discover.
