Test Yourself: Can You Pick Out Art Related to These University of Michigan Courses?

For Curriculum / Collection, seven University of Michigan faculty worked with UMMA Curator for University Learning and Programs Dave Choberka to select works of art from the UMMA collection that correspond to their course work and the themes of their class this semester. 

As part of the exhibition, which you can explore online now, we’ve collected objects for each course that address the nature of reality, imagination, and vision in relation to politics, social action, science, mathematics and more.

While the faculty and curator have made selections that they feel match the topics at hand, we’re curious how you’d choose art for these same themes. There are no ‘right’ answers! Take our latest quiz below, and challenge yourself to see unusual connections between objects and course topics this semester at the University of Michigan.
