Pop-up Art Installations
April 3-8, 2017
Exploring our aspirations for a diverse campus community — a topic that was covered by Justices Sotomayor and Baer during a January 30, 2017, colloquium – means also understanding challenges from U-M’s past. The Future University Community will feature some of these moments the week of April 3-8, 2017, with “Stumbling Blocks,” a series of pop-up art installations planned for Central, Medical and North campuses. The exhibit is timed to coincide with the Bicentennial Spring Festival.
These seven installations draw attention to various chapters from U-M’s history. The displays are prominent and provocative asking us to redefine our community, recalibrate our goals and set out new aspirations that are informed by the past. Each installation is accompanied by quotes from relevant community members. Learn more about Stumbling Blocks.
