Since visiting UMMNH in January, University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance student Saawan has been crafting textiles inspired by patterns found in nature. His work includes a hat based on a newly identified star, featured in our Measuring Time and Space exhibit!

Saawan explained: โ€œFor this project, I decided what to make based on what could work well in a given medium. The natural world has always had solutions before us โ€” I also think we tend to ignore it far too often. I like to think that things we see at the museum influence us in ways we don't even realize.โ€

What patterns have you noticed in the natural world? How have they sparked your creativity?

#TBT to the Ruthven Museums building! U-M student and researcher, Julia Van Goor, took this time-lapse video of UMMNH's old location on the last day it was open to the public!

Julia: โ€œGrowing up near Ann Arbor, many of my first museum memories were formed here. The new museum is great and did a wonderful job of modernizing the information to make it more accessible, but on the last day that the old museum was open, I remember feeling like I was saying goodbye to an old friend and an integral part of my childhood. I also felt that same childhood sense of awe at a big room filled with dinosaur (and mastodon) bones. That sense of wonder helped make me into the scientist I am today.โ€

Julia and her classmates recently completed their virtual science communication training with UMMNH and are working with museum staff on content for the new [email protected] webpage. Stay tuned to see what they create!
