Ann Arbor 2019

While visiting Detroit, Michigan, I drove to Ann Arbor to photograph Michigan Stadium, the largest stadium in the United States, and second largest stadium in the world, and is home of the Michigan Wolverines football team. In front of the stadium is a monument 'in memory of the men and women of the University of Michigan who gave their lives for their country'. Across the street is the Crisler Center, an indoor arena that is the home arena for the University of Michigan's men's and women's basketball teams as well as its women's gymnastics team. After spending time at Michigan Stadium, I drove over to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library. Across the street is the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Biomedical Engineering Building. Next, I drive to State Street, a main thoroughfare in the center of the University of Michigan. Along State Street, I photograph Jeffries Hall, the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house and the Lawyer’s Club.  I then make my way over to the University of Michigan’s Museum of Art where Charles Ginnever's 'Daedalus' sculpture stands outside. Mark di Suvero's 'Shang' sculpture stands outside the Maxine and Stuart Frankel and The Frankel Family Wing, as well as a larger than life, orange sculpture by di Suvero called 'Orion'.

After photographing the great art, I walked pass Angell Hall, Kelsey Museum Of Archaeology and the Literature, Science and The Arts Building. One building I was looking forward to photographing was the Michigan Union building, built in 1917, but it was under heavy construction.  Walking further on State Street, I photographed the Sigma Chi Fraternity - Theta Theta Chapter house and Alpha Delta Phi fraternity house.  My last stops of the day were The Justice Center/City Hall and the A. Alfred Taubman Biomedical Science Research Building and Kahn Auditorium.
