Tang’s Tenth Anniversary Luncheon is a Time for Reflection

The Saturday celebration at the Tang included the dedication of the museum’s newest named space, the Illumination Gallery, named in honor the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund. The gallery is a “bridge” on the Tang’s second floor that overlooks the atrium and the entrance to the Wachenheim Gallery below.

The Illumination Fund recently awarded Skidmore a grant of $1.2 million in support of the Tang’s museum-based learning program. The grant virtually fulfilled a three-to-one matching grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, guaranteeing that the College would achieve the $4.8 million endowment needed to ensure the continuance of key components already in process at the Tang.
