Since November 2013, the University of Michigan Museum of Art has provided art-lovers with more time for free museum education and exploration through the UMMA Fridays After 5 series. On July 18, as the last installment of the successful trial program, the museum will stay open until 8pm. As “a direct result of recent visitor surveys which cited a desire for more evening hours,” says UMMA Director Joseph Rosa, the series answers the community’s call for more access. “We invite the community to explore the museum's galleries and special exhibitions—stop by after work, before dinner with the family, or as part of an evening out on the town.”

Friday, July 18. 5-8pm. UMMA, 525 S. State St.
