New at UMMA: Illuminated Manuscript

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Aug. 19

,

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

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.

Aftermath: Landscapes of Devastation

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through May 27
phone 734-764-0395

Over the last 150 years the medium of photography has powerfully depicted and shaped representations of past and present scenes of devastation. Aftermath examines landscape photographs made at the sites of natural or human-made disasters, capturing the results of destructive forces wrought on the land and its inhabitants, including volcano eruptions and floods, massacres and uprisings, and even nuclear explosions. The exhibition includes images of the aftermath of events spanning over 2,000 years of human history. These photographs remind us that disaster is often a collective experience that can impact societies well after an event. Free
