Public programs facilitate dialogue between academics and professionals, informing scholarship and strengthening practice.
Multiple day conferences, year-long colloquia, individual lectures, “conversations” between individuals, hands-on workshops, and Museums at Noon talks featuring our graduate students all contribute to the remarkable richness of MSP offerings.
Video recordings of some MSP lectures are archived for viewing in our Media Gallery.

“A Cloth of Earth and Sky”
March 12, 2016 - April 25, 2016
Every culture has found ways to restore body, mind, and spirit in nature. In this exhibit, African-American quilters from the Great Lakes region interpret how plants, gardens, and nature are embedded in cultural awareness and expressions of health. The exhibit includes inherited and contemporary works that express cultural legacy based in the art of quilting related to individual and shared healing. Sponsored by the Great Lakes African American Quilters Network & Matthaei-Nichols.
Exhibit runs March 12 – April 24 at Matthaei Botanical Gardens.
