University Art Collection
From its modest beginnings in the 1960's, the University Art Collection has grown from 127 objects to include nearly 6000 works of art. The university's enduring philosophy is that pieces in the collection appear throughout the campus – in signature buildings, libraries, the medical complex, meeting rooms, the President's office and residence, and on the university's malls and lawns. Integrated into public spaces, the collection embraces and enhances the everyday lives of people on campus and in the surrounding communities. Check out the online collection or take a tour.

It will house two state-of-the-art theatres with 21st-century technology design, the production facilities and the Gretchen Valade Jazz Center.
The Mobile Arts Workshop program is an annual collaboration between the James Pearson Duffy Department of Art and Art History, the Carr Center and the Detroit Parks and Recreation Department. The department provides one-day workshops for youth at various community sites throughout.
