Office Hours with Director Christina Olsen: University of Michigan Museum of Art.

  community member   < less office hours

Here's your chance to chat with our new director! Come by and say hello, tell her what you love about UMMA, or what you'd like to see change.
Olsen, now a little more than two months into her term, is hosting open office hours in the UMMA Commons in February, March, and April. She is inviting visitors, U-M staff and faculty, students, and community members to drop in and talk one-on-one about the Museum, ways it might change, and to ask questions.
"I want to hear from the people that care about this Museum, and who want to shape its future," Olsen says. "UMMA needs to be open to new ideas. A great way to get new ideas is by talking with people face to face."
Olsen will talk with visitors on a first-come, first-serve basis. Visitors should queue near the director's table in the UMMA Commons.
University of Michigan Museum of Art, 525 South State Street Ann Arbor, MI, 48109. Free. 734.764.0395. http://umma.umich.edu/events/4349/office-hours-director-christina-olsen [map]
