Umbororo Crossing


Did you happen to miss the large, hooved mammals casually walking down State Street last Friday evening? Don't fret. You can still catch a glimpse of them as they continue their stroll in front of City Hall (100 N. Fifth Ave.) between East Ann St. and East Huron St. from April 19 - 27. These wonderful sculptures are the work of University of Michigan MFA candidate Elshafei Mohamed and are based on experiences with the Umbororo nomads of the Sudan.


Thank you! I have been wondering about the story behind those wonderful beasts!
