The ugliest building on the ugliest college campus in North America. The outside looks like a Soviet bunker if the bunker's blueprints got folded at weird angles and everyone involved in construction was too afraid to speak up and built it with all the folds still in. This place is invariably filled with the kind of "art" that earns the... More

We stumbled upon this little gem while touring Skidmore College. The exhibit was an installation that had a wading pool with floating dishes that clanked into each other making sounds. We were a bit rushed, as we were with a tour, but delighted to see such an innovative and fresh installation in a small liberal arts college.

This is a wonderful art museum on the campus of Skidmore College. They have several different art exhibitions, so you will never get tried of going there. They art work is sometimes very contemporary; but it is good to see different types of art work.

Always look forward to a visit. Their exhibitions are unusual, thought-provoking, fun. Even the elevator has installations. Take a curator's tour when they have them. Great gift shop too-love their jewelry.

We only had a chance to see one small exhibit because the staff was in the middle of prepping the next big exhibition. However, we were warmly welcomed in to see what we could see and we were fortunate enough to run into an art department professor who gave us a wonderful history and background on this up and coming...

This museum always has different installations and is always awesome. I lived in the area my whole life and never went until a few years ago. I was looking for a place to take my step-son because he was sick of the Empire State Museum but he loves museums. We took him here and he had a blast! I was... More
