Whistler at UMMA


On Beauty and the Everyday: The Prints of James McNeill Whistler opened last week and runs through Nov. 28. Most of the works - and most of the Ann Arbor museum's Whistler holdings - came from Margaret Watson Parker, whose 1936 bequest to the museum included Whistler's prints and an extensive Asian art collection.

According to an article in the Washington Post, " (the) exhibition of more than 100 prints by James McNeill Whistler at the University of Michigan Museum of Art is the largest collection of the 19th century American artist's work to be displayed there in more than 15 years. "

Please check the program calendar of the Museum for gallery talks and tours.


WOW, what an amazing exhibit! I plan on going there to see this collection with my daughters. I am excited that this is the largest exhibit of a 19th century American artist to be displayed there in 15 years. What a treat for everyone in Ann Arbor!
