UMMA After Hours UMMA After Hours
Drop in during this free community event to enjoy this season’s special exhibitions, hear from UMMA curators in the galleries, and groove to live jazz-funk fusion with the Ypsilanti-based band, Impulse, in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Browse the galleries and enjoy new special exhibitions including: a collection of works from the height of the Abstract Expressionist movement through the early twenty-first century in 'Exercising the Eye: The Gertrude Kasle Collection'; eye-catching contemporary poster designs by renowned Japanese artists, Ikko Tanaka, Shigeo Fukuda, and Kazumasa Nagai; 'Aftermath: Landscapes of Devastation' featuring photographs that portray both well-known and untold stories of violence, tragedy, and loss, spanning over 2,000 years of human history—from ancient Pompeii to September 11, 2001; and two sculpture installations, 'Tim Noble and Sue Webster: The Masterpiece​,' a shadow self-portrait of the artists created from metal casts of dead vermin​; and 'Patricia Piccinini: The Comforter,' in which strange and evocative sculptures incorporate ideas and questions about the ethical implications of scientific progress.

Enjoy live music performed by Impulse, an Ypsilanti-based jazz-funk fusion band known for delighting audiences with their unique blend of get-on-up-on-the-floor and laid back sounds.

​Curators’ conversations and light refreshments round out the event.
