You know what they say — children are the future. This idiom is best illustrated by the 81st Detroit Public Schools Community District Student Exhibition. Despite massive cuts to Detroit’s public school art programs, artistic students persevere with the support of the exemplary teachers working tirelessly to encourage self-expression. Explorations of imagination and visions of the future, as shown by students grades K-12, the exhibit will feature hundreds of works in a wide range of mediums including paint, print, drawings, photography, ceramics, video, jewelry, and more. Free with general admission

New at UMMA: Illuminated Manuscript

,

Books of hours—custom-made for private devotion in the Christian faith—were a bestseller in medieval Europe. These manuscripts incorporated prayers, hymns, biblical stories, and monthly calendars featuring religious feast days, which were often supplemented by images painted in exquisite detail. Today, books of hours are a testament to the visually rich material culture of the Middle Ages. UMMA was recently gifted a bejeweled double-sided calendar leaf for January. Executed on parchment, the page highlights the material opulence and artistry involved in manuscript illumination. Free

In celebration of the University of Michigan’s Bicentennial in 2017, artist and distinguished U­–M art professor Jim Cogswell was invited to create a series of public window installations in response to the holdings of the University of Michigan Museum of Art and the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. For this visionary project, the artist adhered a procession of vivid images to the glass walls of the museums in a rhythmically evocative narrative, based on reassembled fragments from a diverse range of artworks in both museums' permanent collections.

Tim Noble and Sue Webster: The Masterpiece

Sundays, 12-5 p.m. and Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through May 13
phone 734-764-0395

Since the 1980s, British artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster have been known for their shadow sculptures built from materials as diverse as scrap metal, garbage, taxidermy, and sex toys. The Masterpiece (2014) is a shadow self-portrait of the artists created from metal casts of dead vermin they collected and welded together into a ball. From afar the casts appear to be a stunning abstract silver sculpture; on closer inspection the menagerie of creatures emerges, only to change form again—as a shadow on the wall—into a precise and elegant image that is astonishingly different from the objects that create it.

Scott Campbell: Caro Kann

Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through May 11

Scott Vincent Campbell's first solo exhibition, Caro Kann, takes its name from a chess opening for black. A nationally-ranked competitive player as a child, the game was massively influential in the shaping and evolution of his worldview, and continues to be a source of inspiration and metaphor for the artist today. The two bodies of work presented in Caro Kann both speak to this idea of defensive strategies that individuals and societies alike employ. The exhibited sculptures and works on paper function as metaphorical stand-ins, physical reminders, of the various defensive mechanisms that we all engage in on some level in order to move through the world. These habits or tactics are not inherently harmful, but like most human invention, possess an inherent duality. Sometimes protective and comforting; sometimes damaging and isolating, shielding us from confronting an uncomfortable reality. In Caro Kann, Campbell explores both sides of this coin at a time when it seems that everyone has their guards up.
