Guided Tour

Sunday, March 29, 2 pm - 3 pm

This exhibition, featuring rarely seen archival dried and pressed plant specimens, celebrates the upcoming 2015 opening of the new Medicinal Garden at the University of Michigan’s Matthaei Botanical Gardens. The earliest botanical garden at the University was a pharmaceutical garden established in 1897. The new garden, developed in partnership with the College of Pharmacy and Medical School faculty, aims to explore the botanical origins of historical and current medicines, and to promote a better understanding of the profound relationship between plants and human health. Docents will introduce this exhibition and connect these botanicals to other images of nature in UMMA’s permanent collection.

Photography Gallery
This program is full. We are no longer accepting registrations. Please join us for a public tour of this exhibition led by our award-winning docents on Sunday, April 12 at 2 pm. 

Join curator Carole McNamara for a gallery talk on the photographs of Czech photographer Hana Hamplová.  This exhibition, consisting of 19 photographs from UMMA’s collection, is a meditation on the importance of paper and the written word to civilization—including how easily writings and, consequently, knowledge can be lost.

Lead support for the exhibition Meditations on Paper: Hana Hamplova is provided by the Herbert W. and Susan L. Johe Endowment.  Additional generous support is provided by the University of Michigan Center for European Studies, Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies, and the Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies.
