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.

Art 4 Activism

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.
