Employee Art Exhibition at Michigan Medicine

About the Exhibition
Each year Gifts of Art presents an exhibition of artwork made by Michigan Medicine faculty, staff, students, volunteers and their family members. It is our pleasure to display the artistic accomplishments and showcase the exceptional talent and creativity of our extensive (~26,000) healthcare community.

Due to Covid-19, the Employee Art Exhibition is on hiatus for 2020. Our tentative plan for 2021 is for the exhibition to be on display in the gallery at the usual time in September.

The Master of Ceremonies for the 2019 Artist Reception and Awards Ceremony was Hilary King, MS, RN, U-M Health System Associate Director for Operations, Office of the Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. The juror was Jim Leija, Deputy Director for Public Experience and Learning, U-M Museum of Art (UMMA).
