What Can ‘A Pile of Stuff’ Truly Become?

Unlike any art museum exhibition you’ve seen, FUN (working title) will transform before your very eyes as it becomes what you — our community, our students, and our visitors — make of it.

Over the course of this exhibition, UMMA’s glass-walled Stenn gallery will become a creation space. Piles of materials and supplies will form the backdrop of a collaborative, summer-long free artists’ workshop. A place to create, experiment, glue, paint, and get messy.

You’re invited to roll up your sleeves and work have fun alongside local artist Mark Tucker and his U-M students to help create this colorful, kinetic, and altogether FUN art installation. Inspired by objects in UMMA’s collection, you’ll create giant movable and interactive sculptures (AKA puppets) that will take on a life of their own. 

Along the way, you may uncover how art is made, how a museum works, and maybe even discover something about yourself.

Lead support for this exhibition is provided by the U-M Office of the Provost, the UMMA Docent Program, the U-M Lloyd Scholars for Writing and the Arts, the U-M School of Education, and the University of Michigan Credit Union Arts Adventures Program, UMMA's Lead Sponsor for Student and Family Engagement.
