#UMonument; 9-10:30pm, Front of Angell Hall
#UMonument is an interactive, community "translation" of the facade of Angell Hall through laser lights, music, and dancing, presented by U-M’s Contexts for Classics (http://www.umich.edu/~cfc/index.html) and supported by over twenty-five other institutions and departments across U-M’s campus. It is a free event, open to the public, and featuring a DJ set by Scout, live dancing by K-Motion, and laser art by Mike Gould / Illuminatus. This outdoor, end of semester, “Dance Your Classes Off” party is the culmination of #UMonument – an event dedicated to the study and celebration of the facade of Angell Hall, one of architect Albert Kahn’s most well-known U-M buildings. (You can see videos from the panel portion of the event that occurred back in January by visiting: http://www.umich.edu/~objtext/texts.html.)
