Photo gallery: Painting of the mural, ‘The Gift’


The U-M Museum of Art’s current exhibition, “Watershed,” includes a mural painted by artist Bonnie Devine. Devine began painting “The Gift” at the A. Alfred Taubman Gallery I on July 6 during museum hours and is expected to have the mural completed by July 15.

Museum visitors are permitted to watch Devine while she paints the mural, which will depict a brightly colored map of the Great Lakes region looking out at a highway overlaid across the land. It will examine violent accounts of colonial expansion across the Great Lakes watershed.
