It’s your last chance to check out some art exhibitions at Michigan Medicine!

December 2, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The current group of art exhibitions sponsored by Gifts of Art will be on display through tomorrow, Dec. 3. This is your final chance to check them out if you are on the main medical campus!

Here is a closer look at two of these exhibits:

Objects and bronze by Adnan Charara

Adnan Charara’s life circumstances have compelled him to contemplate themes such as ethnicity, identity, diversity, anxiety, fear, love and acceptance. Discussion on these topics can help forge connections between oneself and others as well as with one’s emotions and the physical world.

Charara’s use of comical and cartoon-like subject matter in his paintings, prints and sculptures allows him to present existential motifs in a simplified form. In the Historia series, his found object sculptures express parts of his internal struggles and reflect on history’s relationship with contemporary society. They are blueprints for being human: imperfect, unique, multi-faceted.

Where: Gifts of Art Gallery – University Hospital Main Corridor, Floor 2.

When: 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily through Dec. 3

Oil paintings by Mingshi Huang

International exhibiting artist Mingshi Huang has been a resident of southeast Michigan and has walked the shores of the Huron River for more than 30 years.

Huang’s artwork includes painting and sculpture, and his interests cover a variety of subjects and genres. This exhibition features oil paintings on canvas and linen created by the artist in recent years. They depict river scenes based on the artist’s on-site observation and open air (en plein air) work along the Huron River around Ann Arbor.

Because of the challenge outdoors of constantly changing light, the paintings have impressionist characteristics and reveal different aspects of the artist’s love of nature.

Where: Gifts of Art Gallery – Rogel Cancer Center, Level 1. 

When: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday-Friday through Dec. 3
