SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College Family Saturday series continues April 29 at 2 p.m. with Family Saturday: Face to Face.
After learning about the exhibition Face to Face from the student curators in Associate Professor and Chair of Art History Saleema Waraich’s course “(De)Colonizing the Museum: Addressing Systemic Racism and Promoting Social Justice,” participants will create their own mixed-media portraits in response to Martine Gutierrez’s Demons, Chin ‘Demon of Lust,’ p93 from Indigenous Woman.
Family Saturdays, which are suitable for children 5 and older accompanied by an adult, aim to foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art-making activity. The programs run from 2 to 3:30 pm and are free and open to the public. No registration required; supplies provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
The spring season’s Family Saturdays conclude on May 13. Summer dates include June 24, July 29, August 12, and August 26, with details to be announced later. For more information, visit the Tang website at https://tang.skidmore.edu or contact the Tang Visitors Services Desk at 518-580-8080.
