Store Specialties

  • Wood Art: As part of an inspired recycling initiative, wood felled at the construction site has been transformed into astonishingly beautiful pieces of wood art. Decorative and functional objects, platters, pens, bowls, pepper grinders, wine stoppers, boxes, and vases will be sold exclusively at the Museum Store.
  •  Architecture-inspired Items: Decorative and functional art inspired by the award-winning architecture of the new Frankel Wing and the majesty of the Beaux-Arts aesthetic of Alumni Memorial Hall.
  • Pewabic Art: Hand-crafted pottery and custom-framed tiles, known for their unique, iridescent glazes.
  • Silk Art by Ernestine Rubin: The printing of an image onto silk, and wrapping the body with this experience led Rubin to the development of these scarves. The one-of-a-kind photography inspired scarves often present the essential elements of water, fire, and earth.
  • Local Artists: Local and regional talent shines in an inspiring assortment of handmade art objects.
  • Gifts/ Children’s Gifts: A wide selection of story and craft books. Also, many fun art-based games for children and the whole family.

Your purchase in the Museum Store serves as a gift to the University of Michigan Museum of Art. Proceeds from merchandise sold at the Museum Store help support UMMA’s programming and operations.
