*We regret that the Dance for Democracy event has been canceled due to staffing issues.
On the evening of the Michigan primaries, UMMA offers up a late night student event with live music, food, and election updates in partnership with the Residential College, the Ginsberg Center’s Big Ten Voter Challenge and the School of Music Theatre & Dance.
This program is part of UMMA's on-going commitment to and partnership with the Big Ten Voter Challenge and is offered in connection with the winter term exhibition Cullen Washington, Jr.: The Public Square (on view January 25 - May 17, 2020) in which questions about democratic society are expressed through large-scale abstract art.
Dance for Democracy is organized by the Center for World Performance Studies, the Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service, and UMMA, with support from the Residential College and the School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
Student programming at UMMA is generously supported by the University of Michigan Credit Union Arts Adventures Program, UMMA's Lead Sponsor for Student and Family Engagement.
Lead support for this exhibition is provided by Erica Gervais Pappendick and Ted Pappendick, Candy and Michael Barasch, the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, Office of the President, Michigan Medicine, the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the Institute for the Humanities. Additional generous support is provided by the University of Michigan Department of History of Art, School of Education, Department of Afroamerican and African Studies, School of Social Work, and Gerald R.
