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.

Arthur Zankel Music Center

The Zankel Music Center is a relatively new addition to the Skidmore College Campus. The center plays host to the Skidmore College Music Department as well as public concerts, lectures, and other events. The wide, bright atrium welcomes guests to the Helen Filene Ladd Concert Hall, an acoustically pristine space for both small and large audiences. The Zankel Center is one of the first buildings Skidmore College guests see upon arrival to the main entrance of the campus.
