SARATOGA SPRINGS — The popular summer open house makes its return to the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College. 

Frances Day - named in honor of the Museum’s namesake, Frances Young Tang – is a family-friendly event and features art exhibitions, tours, art-making activities, food, music, and fun from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 9.

The open house event hasn’t been held since 2019 due to the pandemic. 

This year features a special gallery talk of artists in the exhibition Alumni Invitational 5, including Zaria Forman, Fitzhugh Karol, Zehra Khan, and Susan Meyer; an opening-day curator’s tour of Where Words Falter: Art and Empathy, and a musical performance of lo-fi surf-pop by Albany’s Pony in the Pancake.

Refreshments will include lemonade, water, and cookies during the day. During the concert, empanadas and ice cream will be available, and beer and wine will be available for purchase via Visa or Mastercard.

All events are free and open to the public, and free parking is available in lots adjacent to the Museum. In case of inclement weather, activities will be indoors. For more information, visit tang.skidmore.edu or call the Visitors Services Desk at 518-580-8080.
