Arts at Michigan is dedicated to providing a platform for University of Michigan
students to share their artistic voice and creativity. Share Your Genius is a suite
of programs meant to showcase those voices and visions. A few of the programs are
displayed here, and more can be found through the link below.
Each week we feature a Haiku of The Week in our newsletter.
Here are the past haikus we’ve featured, written by the Michigan community.
Want to share your own poetic genius? Submit a haiku to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's easy - 5 syllables, then 7, then 5!.
Arts at Michigan believes there is an artist inside each of us. The As I See It Competitions are your
opportunity to share your artistic genius! Competitions will be held periodically throughout the year, with different themes and mediums
for each round. Submissions are narrowed down by staff, and then the finalists are voted on by the public in the Unions and by the
U-M Community online. Winners get great prizes, so be sure you’re signed up for Arts Info, our weekly newsletter, so you’ll hear about our
future contests and opportunities.
Arts at Michigan, ArtsEngine, and the Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service & Learning
have created the Art 4 Activism initiative as an annual competition promoting student
engagement and activism through the arts. The results are a series of competitions
asking students to create written and visual art addressing social justice themes.
It's searchable by date, time and genre (music, dance, theatre, visual arts,
and more), so you can view the events of interest to you and plan out your schedule.
Our database also contains opportunities for students to audition and submit work to
University and community organizations alike.
The Michigan Pops Orchestra is the oldest student-run, student-directed collegiate pops orchestra in the United States. The Michigan Pops Orchestra prides itself in providing opportunities for U-M students to continue playing their instruments. Pops believes that making music is much more fun when orchestra members know each other and encourage a fun and social atmosphere through frequent social events. Pops is committed to presenting fun and exciting concerts to the U-M and Ann Arbor community, presenting a variety of music that appeals to the music lover in everyone.
Many of the pages on our site feature photography from students and alumni from the university. We change the
photographs and designs periodically and submissions are welcome.
