Nights at the Museum | SMTD@UMMA Performance: Heart of Tones

UMMA's Nights at the Museum. UMMA's Nights at the Museum.
UMMA will once again illuminate its facade with eight days of artwork, performances, and video during Nights At the Museum this September.

UMMA’s exterior media art initiative is free and open to the public, and will run September 15-22 from early evening to dawn along its South State Street-side facade, on the west side of the Maxine and Stuart Frankel and the Frankel Family Wing.

Inspired by Random International’s LED-light and motion-sensing dynamic sculpture, Swarm Study / II, featured in UMMA's exhibition Victors for Art: Michigan's Alumni Collectors—Part II: Abstraction, SMTD professors Stephen Rush and Amy Chavasse lead students in an outdoor performance of interactive works by Pauline Oliveros and John Cage.

UMMA encourages viewers to bring blankets and chairs to enjoy the performances on the lawn, and to send feedback using the #ummanights hashtag on social media sites.

Nights at the Museum is presented in partnership with the University Musical Society, the University of Michigan Bicentennial Office, School of Music, Theatre & Dance and Department of Screen Arts & Cultures, the Ann Arbor District Library, and the Neutral Zone.
