University of Michigan Museum of Art offers free memberships


The University of Michigan Museum of Art, which seeks to transform individual and civic life by promoting the discovery, contemplation, and enjoyment of the art of our world, is offering free memberships.

In just a few seconds, you can subscribe to the UMMA and get informed on all their events, exhibits and activities or just specific areas of interest. With the addition in 2009 of the 53,000 square foot Maxine and Stuart Frankel and the Frankel Family Wing and the restoration of historic Alumni Memorial Hall, UMMA ushered in a new era, a reimagining of the university art museum as a new “town square” for the 21st century.

With dramatic new galleries highlighting works drawn from the Museum’s collections of more than 20,000 artworks (representing over 150 years of collecting at the University), special exhibition spaces that soar with new life, “open storage” galleries, and a range of lively educational and event spaces, UMMA is committed to making this your museum.

As the cultural heart of the University of Michigan, UMMA is open and accessible to all. They are now extending UMMA’s inclusive free admission philosophy to free Museum membership. UMMA Free Membership provides Museum visitors with ongoing opportunities to deeply engage in the arts and become stakeholders in the Museum’s future. Rather than paying membership dues, they ask you to consider making a gift to UMMA once a year instead. These donations are 100 percent tax deductible and directly support UMMA exhibitions and programs.

To sign up for free membership they ask that you provide your current contact information, including mailing address, phone number, and e-mail. You can opt out of mailings and emails, but you’ll miss information on free member events and promotions as well as insider information on UMMA’s exhibitions and programs.
