The University of Michigan has a long history of creating, supporting and embracing a culture of art that enhances the lives of our students, alumni, faculty and staff, and the far-reaching U-M community at large.

U-M Arts & Culture traverses visual arts and design; music, theater and dance; architecture and urban planning; galleries, libraries, archives and museums; botanical gardens and public spaces; art history; TV, film and radio; the humanities; and the intersection of all of these areas. Spotlighting how the arts can impact and benefit outside disciplines is a cornerstone of the mission of arts & culture at U-M.
