Collectors and Collections: Passion Turned into Profession

For most people, a pile of toys when you’re a child is your first collection. Throughout one’s life, they go through many other collections, ranging from books to vinyl to even clothes.

A Walk Through the Juried Exhibit

If you’re an artist at Skidmore, one of the most rewarding accomplishments is to get your work featured in the Juried Student Exhibit.

Much of the Skidmore community is familiar with the high-quality works cyclically displayed at the Tang Teaching Museum.

How the Juried Student Exhibit Comes to Life

Two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and even digital pieces are accepted for entry, making this opportunity one artists should not miss. Curatorial Assistant of the Schick Rebecca Shepard explained how they set up the beloved Juried Student Exhibit.
