Feel Good Fridays at UMMA 

Join us on the second Friday of each month at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. Looking for a reason to feel good? Let art, music, and culture lift you up. Reconnect and recharge each month at Feel Good Friday. 

October is Feel Good Vote! 

Developed in collaboration with visiting Artist Philippa Pham Hughes!

Artist Philippa Hughes takes over UMMA’s monthly Feel Good Friday event with an interactive night of political issues and artists — Artistic expression is one of the most powerful ways to spark conversation and in this museum “late nite” event, Hughes will pair Michigan-based artists with policy experts to develop interactive installations about important issues.
