A visit to UMMA

One of the great things about library staff day was getting to visit the University of Michigan Museum of Art -- and being given a wonderful tour by Prue Rosenthal. There are many reasons to return, including that striking metal sculpture made from gun parts; the Tiffany glass piece; and in the gift shop, beautiful wood art reclaimed from trees felled to build the museum's new Frankel Wing. Similarly, AADL reclaimed wood from the site in building Traverwood.

Agreed, I loved our visit to the museum! The other thing I thought was cool was that big sculpture in the glass room with all the mirrors. Fun!
