Exhibits Popping Up Around Town

Although the Alden B. Dow Museum of Science & Art continues to remain closed due to flood damage to our facility, we are bringing exciting and engaging pop-up exhibits in the Center's Brick Lobby and throughout the community. Join us for one of the FREE pop-up exhibits below:

What's Certain About Uncertainty

APR 15 - JUL 25, 2021
in the Midland Center Brick Lobby

FREE to the Public

This exhibition features over 100 objects from Greater Michigan focusing on the pandemic that unleashed unparalleled consequences effecting economics, health care, and social norms across the globe. As the pandemic was gripping our nation, Midland, Michigan experienced a catastrophic flood that washed away the fabric of the community leaving behind devastation. However, this devastation was soon filled by the hope and inspiration of community members in order to rebuild what was lost, courageously moving forward thru the pandemic and flood by relying on our government, state, city, neighborhoods and friends. Visit this FREE exhibit at the Center to witness these stories of heroism.


The exhibit, scheduled to take place April 15 – July 25, 2021 will start at Midland Center for the Arts and then travel to partners and various churches in Downtown Midland.
