In celebration of the University Bicentennial, Stamps School of Art & Design Professor and artist Jim Cogswell was invited to develop a public installation drawing upon the collections of the University of Michigan Museum of Art and the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. For this visionary project, the artist created a single rhythmic procession of vivid, but fragmentary images installed on the glass walls of the two museums. In this walking tour of the installation at UMMA, Cogswell will describe the purpose and process of his project which narrates a compelling story about the movement of people and objects throughout history, their stories now set in new relationships to each other.

Lead support for Cosmogonic Tattoos is provided by the University of Michigan Office of the Provost. Additional support for the artist's project is provided by the University of Michigan Bicentennial Office and the Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design.
