#ColorOurCollections 2019 from University of Michigan Collections


These are just a few favorite images from some works I’ve discovered in the University of Michigan Libraries. I turned them into coloring pages because I’m such a fan of the #ColorOurCollections project and because I think we have such wonderful collections here at UM and I like folk to know about them. Absolutely delighted that this year the UM Kelsey Museum took on the challenge!
