UMMA and the Ann Arbor Summer Festival welcome artist Mary Mattingly to Ann Arbor for a 3-day residency, June 27 - June 30. Mattingly, whose photograph Life of Objects is featured in UMMA’s exhibition The World to Come, is deeply concerned with our relationships to objects—where they come from, where they go, their implications for humans, and their impact on the environment.
Mattingly will lead a large-scale collaborative public art project over three evenings. Come build a miniature landscape with Mattingly and other festival goers and explore your own relationship to objects, built landscapes, and habits of consumption. Bring a household item or object you are willing to part with to contribute to the project. Objects in the Round is an exclusive opportunity for every generation to engage with arts and ecology.
