Frances Young Tang was a businesswoman, philanthropist, and 1961 Skidmore College graduate who died in 1992. In her memory, the Tang family made a substantial donation that led to the Tang Teaching Museum becoming a reality in 2000. Frances Day honors Frances Young Tang’s legacy of creativity and philanthropy with a day of free activities.
The museum’s sixth annual Frances Day is on Saturday, June 15. Visitors can experience multiple contemporary art exhibitions, art-making activities, tours, food, music, and more.
Dayton Director of The Tang, Ian Berry, joins us along with Elizabeth Streb, a MacArthur “genius” Fellowship recipient, acclaimed choreographer, and the founder of Streb Extreme Action.
