The Tang At Skidmore

Tang Teaching Museum & Art Gallery At Skidmore CollegeSkidmore's rich art scene thrives at the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery. This center serves as a valuable learning resource for students of Skidmore College as well as a funky art and entertainment hotspot for the Saratoga community.

The Tang is open to the public free of charge, offering tours and magnificent art exhibits year round. Live music adds to the enriching culture at Tang, as this venue features "Upbeat On The Roof" music series in the summer. During this series, the rooftop of the Tang at Skidmore is transformed into a stage and plays host to an array of performing artists and music groups on Friday nights.

Each May we celebrate Caffe Lena's anniversary with a big, special concert. Oftentimes we feature someone who outgrew our tiny room decades ago. But we don't want you to get the idea that our legacy is a closed book--it's an unfolding story. As we count down the days until the rebirth of our historic home with a major renovation, we celebrate the vibrant Caffe Lena of today with four of our current brightest shining stars. We bring you Michigan's Motown-bluegrass outfit Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys (NPR Top 12 of 2015); Troy singer-songwriter Sean Rowe with his band ("you can safely add Sean Rowe to the top tier of performing solo singer-songwriters that includes Shawn Colvin, Vance Gilbert, Greg Brown, and Richard Thompson." Seth Rogovoy); traditional southern mountain balladeers Anna & Elizabeth (featured in 2015 on Huffington Post, No Depression, and NPR Musics Tiny Desk Concert series); and we reprise last year's anniversary concert one-man-band sensation The Suitcase Junket (NPR's Favorite Sessions of 2015). This year's Anniversary Concert is generously supported by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Fingerpaint Marketing and Glens Falls Toyota & Scion.
