The University of Michigan Museum of Art Reopens This Weekend

UMMA studentUMMA student

On March 28, 2009, after nearly three years of restoration and expansion work, the University of Michigan Museum (UMMA) reopens. Many of the current undergraduate students have never set foot in the Museum, so it is most befitting that they were the first group of guests invited in for a sneak preview.

To welcome the community back, the Museum (525 South State Street) is planning a 24-hour open house beginning at 6 p.m. on Satudray, March 28th. Listen for the bells and carillon across campus to peal just before the start of all the (FREE) festivities. There will be performances, dancing, poetry, games, art and jewelry making, taichi, yoga and a scavenger hunt for the little ones. For many, It's a Dream Fulfilled. Let's celebrate!

I went to the student preview and I would encourage everyone to go check out the new space. The art is fantastic, but so is the building itself.
