Every year, the University of Michigan Museum of Art’s award-winning exhibitions and programs reach more than 240,000 visitors onsite and engage a similar size global audience via exhibition tours, publications, and web-based tools.

Philanthropic support allows UMMA to:

  • Develop special exhibitions that span time, culture, and medium—enabling compelling encounters with art that ignite creativity and forge connections across diverse disciplines, geographies, and cultures.  
  • Offer diverse public programs that showcase contemporary creative practice across the visual arts, music, dance, film, and the written and spoken word.
  • Provide university and K-12 students with dynamic learning opportunities.

In addition to project-specific support, UMMA relies on annual gifts, event revenue, and endowments to help create living and meaningful connections for Museum visitors through direct experience with a variety of art forms, making UMMA a meeting place for the arts and a center of civic life.

Thank you for your support of UMMA.
