This exhibition will shed new light on the transformative relationship between American artist Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988) and Chinese ink painter Qi Baishi (1864–1957). In 1930 Noguchi spent six months in Beijing, where he met and studied with the renowned Chinese brush-and-ink painter Qi Baishi, an experience that greatly affected his creative vision. UMMA docents will explore the artists' cross-cultural creative impulses and their respective and lasting influences on worldwide contemporary practice.

Join the Ann Arbor Summer Festival and UMMA to celebrate creativity among us! More than a dozen members of our community—ages 14–59 and including area high school and UM undergraduate students, recent UM graduates, artists, musicians, teachers, and community leaders—participated in the Many Voices at UMMA project to create new films inspired by works of art in our collection. A selection of the resulting short movies will be screened at Top of the Park as part of the 2013 Ann Arbor Summer Festival. Thanks to the newly installed free WiFi service at the Museum, all of the videos are now available in UMMA’s galleries as well as on our award-winning DialogTable.

The Top of the Park screenings are presented in partnership with the Ann Arbor Summer Festival. For more information about the Festival and Top of the Park, visit annarborsummerfestival.org.
