The Tang Collection of over 7,000 objects represents a wide variety of materials, subject matter, and time periods, from Pre-Columbian pots to works made by current contemporary artists. At the heart of the Museum is an ambitious exhibition program of approximately twelve exhibitions each year. The Tang originates nearly all of its exhibitions and regularly involves faculty and students as curators and advisors for its signature interdisciplinary exhibitions.
The collection includes more than 500 photographs which serve as a visual history of photography from its inception in the 1840s to the present day.
Through the Tang Museum, the Schick Art Gallery, the Case Center Gallery and the walls of the Saisselin Art Center, the Studio Art program provides ample opportunity for the exhibition of student artwork in high trafficked locations. The galleries are used as an integral part of the learning process, providing teaching labs that prepare students for post-graduation life as an exhibiting artist.
Collections of student artwork are exhibited throughout the year in the Schick Art Gallery, the Case Gallery and on the walls in the Saisselin Art Center. The annual Senior Seminar exhibition occurs every May in the Tang Museum; galleries of previous senior shows can be found on the Students section of our site.
