Saturday Sampler Tour | Cosmogonic Tattoos

Cosmogonic Tattoos Cosmogonic Tattoos
In celebration of the University’s Bicentennial in 2017, artist and professor Jim Cogswell has been invited by the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology and the University of Michigan Museum of Art to create a set of public window installations in response to the objects in their collections. Titled "Cosmogonic Tattoos," his project uses adhesive vinyl images applied in saturated colors to windows in the two buildings, highlighting the role of these museums in the life of our campus community. Through close examination of objects separated from us by deep chronological and cultural divides, imaginatively transformed within our campus context, this project celebrates the power of architecture, ornament, and material objects to shape knowledge, historical memory, and cultural identity. This tour will begin at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology and go across the street to the University of Michigan Museum of Art. This is a rain or shine event and will take place outside!
