Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College Receives $160,000 in Grants

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NEW YORK—The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College has been awarded grants totaling $160,000 from two foundations to fund the upcoming exhibition “The Imagist Object: New Dimensions in Chicago Art, 1964–1980,” reports Alex Greenberger of Artnews. The Terra Foundation for American Art awarded the Tang $100,000, and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has given $60,000. “The Imagist Object” will open 2018 and is under the direction of Chicago art historians and gallerists John Corbett and Jim Dempsey, along with Tang director Ian Berry.

The grant from the Chicago-based Terra Foundation comes from the year-long Art Design Chicago initiative, which seeks “to explore the breadth of Chicago’s role as a catalyst and incubator for innovations in art and design” through partnerships with institutions in and out of the city. The Terra Foundation and Warhol Foundation grants will be used to produce the exhibition and an accompanying catalogue. “The Imagist Object” will be the first comprehensive exhibition dedicated solely to Imagist artists’ interpretation of objects through sculpture and dimensional paintings.
