The Tang Teaching Museum was one of my favorite places to visit while living in Saratoga Springs. The exhibitions are well designed with unique artists from all over the world. The size is nice as well with three floors! There's also a little shop to buy souvenirs and other trinkets.

The Tang is a wonderful modern art museum located on the campus of Skidmore College. There are several galleries which feature changing exhibitions. You can go every month and there will be something interesting to explore. The day we went even featured an installation piece in the elevator! The works displayed are always interesting, though you may not like it.... More

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...
