Multipurpose Room

For centuries museums have served as guardians of their collections. Traditionally museum staff decided what to show to the public, how to interpret it, and determined learning objectives for visitors. Today, museums are evolving in their approach to visitors and their museum experiences. Moving from an object-centered to a visitor-centered approach, museums are adapting to the changes brought about by the needs and desires of the communities they serve, assisted by the technological advances of recent time. This presentation by Sanam Arab, Access Services Librarian, Circulation Supervisor and Exhibit Support at the University Libraries, will explore the issues of access in the museums, the approach to visitor-generated learning, and the application of technologies to foster both access and learning.

UMMA has assembled a choice group of domestic design objects in a new dedicated Design Gallery. Both design aficionados and novices will recognize some of the historic work on view. UMMA docents will introduce this exciting new installation to visitors along with one of a series of three exhibitions showcasing Michigan architects, Three Michigan Architects. On September 21, visitors will see Part 3 - George Brigham. Brigham, who taught at the University of Michigan for twenty-nine years, was one of the first architects to bring the "International Style" to Ann Arbor. The homes he designed here are considered landmarks for their innovative use of materials and technology.

The sixteen photographs included in this exhibition speak to an especially charged collaboration between photographer and model in that they are all portraits of artists. When a photographer's subject is another artist, how might this impact the outcome of the portrait? In this suite of remarkable photographs, we witness different results ranging from the surreal to the seemingly straightforward. Docents will invite viewers to consider how the chemistry between photographer and artist-sitter affect the final picture.
