UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN MUSEUM OF ART LECTURE SERIES:
Re-Imagining the Museum: A Series Of Public Dialogues

As UMMA breaks ground for its new facility, the University and the Museum invite the public to join in substantive rethinking of the civic role of the museum.  Funded by the Getty Trust, this series of Sunday programs will offer a unique forum for the ideas of seven noted thinkers, each known for their passion for museums and fresh ways of thinking about the place of both museums and art (and art-making) in contemporary culture.  This project is intended to stimulate an ongoing and open discussion with those who care about museums and their potential to contribute to social and civic life, and to propose a collective vision for the bolder and more dynamic Museum of Art that is to come. See Reimagining the Museum for further information.
