United Art and Education Original Art Project: Make an authentic-looking African mask
On November 29, 2012, Skidmore College’s Tang Museum Director Ian Berry and Associate Curator Rachel Seligman led a group of alumni, parents, and friends on a tour of 16 galleries in Chelsea, perhaps the largest art neighborhood in the world. Part of Skidmore’s annual Friends of the President’s New York City gathering, the two curators shared a broad range of what’s going on in today’s art world—paintings, photos, sculpture, and more—and were able to make connections with the art of the 1960s and 1970s. A number of the artists whose work they viewed have also exhibited at the Tang, one of the nation’s most highly regarded teaching museums.
Some of the most famous include the Louvre, the Smithsonian and San Francisco’s Exploration. To make it on this list, the wackier museum is the better.Across the world, there are museums of history, of art and of science.
