Share Your Genius

About

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.

Haiku of the Week

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 arts@umich.edu. It's easy - 5 syllables, then 7, then 5!.

Competitions

As I See It

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.

Science as Art

Arts at Michigan, ArtsEngine, and the Science Learning Center hold an annual Science as Art exhibition, featuring student artwork inspired by and demonstrating scientific ideas and principles. Awards are given out for Best in Show and a range of other categories across a wide range of media.

Campus Creatives

Maize Mirchi

Founded in 2007, Maize Mirchi was brought together by two students who decided it was time to fuse together two cultures with the power of voice, and bring a new genre of performance to the a cappella stage. Since then, their passion for learning music, their love for beautiful sounds, and their connection to South Asian culture has only grown. Maize Mirchi competes in ICCAs, a Western A Cappella circuit; as well as All American Awaaz, a South Asian A Cappella circuit.
