Watershed for Families 

In Watershed, fifteen contemporary artists explore the interconnected histories, present lives, and imagined futures of the Great Lakes region.

UMMA and the U-M Natural History Museum invite families with children ages 5 and up to drop in this summer to explore the artworks and learn about what we need to make a healthy environment.

Free, no registration required. Recommended age: 5 and up.

Saturday, July 30, 11am to 1 pm: Watershed DIY Tour & Activity at UMMA

Pick up an illustrated activity kit at the front desk and use it to explore Watershed and learn more about the art and the artists on display. The kit also provides materials necessary to make your own sunprint cyanotype, just like some of the artists in Watershed
