In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College has collaborated with six other institutions on “All Together Now,” a project aimed at displaying art from the Tang collection in traditional and nontraditional spaces. Exhibitions at neighboring partner institutions run over different periods beginning May 1, 2021 through the fall.
“In the beginning it was really about sharing collections, but it has developed into a way where we're sharing conversation and photography and writing and even staff...What we started as a way to share and promote art collections has turned into a way for us to really strengthen community partnerships in a lot of ways,” said Ian Berry, Director of the Tang Museum.
In a celebration of reintroducing visual art for live public viewing and as a delayed celebration of its 20th anniversary, the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College is sharing its art collection with six other institutions in Saratoga and Warren counties.
Titled “All Together Now,” the monthslong project aims to bring art to traditional and nontraditional spaces. The partnerships include The Hyde Collection in Glens Falls; the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, Saratoga Arts, Saratoga Performing Arts Center and Yaddo, all in Saratoga Springs; and Saratoga County History Center in Ballston Spa.
The project, supported by a $275,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, will run May 1 through January. All exhibits will be in-person with appropriate safety measures and will also be available for online viewing on the Tang website. Although every venue will be exhibiting during that time frame, not all exhibits will run concurrently.
