‘Art In Your Inbox’ Delivers the U-M Museum of Art Collection to Your Desk (or Pocket)

Whether it's providing perspective or prompting moments of peace and reflection, art has an incredible way of helping us understand our experiences. 

During the last few weeks of these unprecedented times, UMMA staff have found comfort in sending images of works from the Museum’s collection back and forth to each other.

The images act as a commentary on our shared experiences. Whether contemporary or historical, they have relevance, they provide grounding and help us make sense of a rapidly changing society, and they give us an escape. 

Because UMMA (and most museums) are closed to the public while the world battles COVID-19, we wanted to start sharing those thoughts and images with all of you as well, in an effort to keep our community connected and art integrated into our lives.

Art In Your Inbox, a new email newsletter from UMMA staff will help us do just that.

We're thinking we'll share new images a couple of times a week, when the mood strikes us and a piece speaks to the moment. We'll try to include some additional reflection prompts to help you spend time with the art, and maybe a creative project inspired by the work as well.

If you like it, we encourage you to share these emails with your friends and family, and let us know (through social media or replying to our emails) about the art in your life that's inspiring you.
