Subject Matters: Materials Science and Engineering - What is This Made Of? Materials / Making / Meaning 

This free event meets in-person event at UMMA. Registration Required. Register Here

How do crystal structures at the microscopic level lead to macro effects in art objects? Just what is a polymer? Is smell a material? Consider these questions and more at the intersection of materials, making, and meaning along with UMMA Curator for University Learning and Programs and U-M faculty Tim Chambers (Materials Science and Engineering).

Subject Matters is offered in collaboration with the UM faculty who worked with UMMA to curate installations in Curriculum / Collection for use by their university classes. Together, we are bringing the UMMA classroom experience to you. You’ll learn about the subject matter, about art, and you’ll have loads of fun doing it. We hope to see you there.

* Participants will be asked to do a teensie-weensie little assignment before the session. Don’t worry. It’ll be fun!
