Located at the heart of one of the world’s finest public research universities, the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) seeks to transform individual and civic life by promoting the discovery, contemplation, and enjoyment of the art of our world. Named the country’s best public university art museum in 2016, UMMA challenges and engages a vibrant university community and the region with exhibitions and programs that connect art with contemporary culture, scholarship with accessibility, tradition with innovation. UMMA’s collection of more than 21,000 objects represents three millennia of art making. Works by Whistler and Picasso, Chinese and Japanese paintings and ceramics, and central African sculptures are among the finest in North America. Dynamic special exhibitions stimulate thinking on the art and ideas of our time. Serving nearly 250,000 visitors each year (including 18,000 U-M students), UMMA delivers an exciting range of performing arts, spoken word, and art-making events, with specialized programs for children, families, and adults with mild memory loss. UMMA has been recognized in national media and with awards from the American Alliance of Museums. Admission, membership, and virtually all programming is free, and the Museum is fully accessible—encouraging and welcoming the participation of all.
