University of Michigan Museum of Art - Google Cultural Institute
One of the finest university art museums in the US, the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) is a dynamic meeting place for the arts situated at the heart of one of the great public universities. UMMA's renowned collections represent 150 years of collecting at the University of Michigan, while its dynamic schedule of special exhibitions, publications, and interpretative programs, featuring the visual, performing, and literary arts, connects visitors with the rich artistic legacy of the past and today's artists, thinkers, and visionaries. In 2009, UMMA opened a landmark addition, named the Maxine and Stuart Frankel and the Frankel Family Wing for its lead benefactors, and a major restoration of its historic Beaux-Arts home, Alumni Memorial Hall. Thanks to this major transformation, UMMA not only more than doubled the space available for collections display, temporary exhibitions, programs and educational exploration, but also fulfilled the Museum’s mission to bridge visual art and contemporary culture, scholarship and accessibility, tradition and innovation.
