Saratoga Springs Arts Commission to Present a Community Conversation

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY (June 3, 2021) — The Saratoga Springs Arts Commission in partnership with Skidmore College invites the public to the next online “town hall” style discussion, on Tuesday, June 8, at 7 p.m., when the topic will be on creative collaboration, with particular focus on All Together Now, an expansive, regional collections sharing project organized by the Tang Teaching Museum with support from the Henry Luce Foundation.

The discussion will be moderated by Ian Berry, Dayton Director, Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College, who will lead a conversation with some of the partners in All Together Now.

Panelists include:

Field Horne, Vice President and Chair of the Museum Committee, Saratoga County History Center

Lisa Kolosek, Independent Curator

Victoria Reisman, Curator, National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame

Christopher Shiley, Senior Director of Artistic Planning, Saratoga Performing Arts Center

All Together Now forges new collaborations between neighbor arts organizations to bring attention to rarely seen objects. At the Tang Teaching Museum, exhibitions feature furniture, tools, and textiles from the Shaker Museum and a revealing survey of postcard collages by Ellsworth Kelly. At partner institutions, exhibitions will show focused selections of work from the Tang collection, including many recently acquired paintings, photographs and sculptures, many shown in dialogue with collections at each museum.

Partner institutions include The Hyde Collection, Ellsworth Kelly Studio, the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, Saratoga Arts, Saratoga County History Center, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Shaker Museum and Yaddo. 

The Arts Commission is excited to continue to provide the public with information about our city’s vital and vibrant cultural landscape and an open dialogue with its leaders.

This online talk will be a Zoom webinar and is free and open to all. The chat will be open for community participation. Join via Zoom at https://skidmore.zoom.us/j/91707540870
