Commemorating the University of Michigan’s 2017 Bicentennial, Victors for Art: Michigan’s Alumni Collectors celebrates the deep impact of Michigan alumni in the global art world. This two-part exhibition presents works collected by a diverse group of alumni that represent the breadth of the University and over seventy years of graduating classes.

It also features a fifth-century Korean roof end tile and an Amish quilt, as well as a work by an Inuit master—thus inviting visitors to explore the pleasures of abstraction across a wide range of media, eras, and genres.
Victors for Art offers an unprecedented opportunity to view art that may have never been publicly displayed otherwise—and most certainly, not all together. [....]
