Already in its second year of operation, the U-M Culture Bus tours expose students and faculty to numerous events throughout the Detroit area.

The Sept. 29 excursion will travel to the Detroit Historical Museum to view the exhibition “30 Who Dared: Detroiters Who Made a Difference.” The exhibit features Detroiters from more than three centuries of Detroit’s history, including artist Mary Chase Stratton and landowner Joseph Campau.

Nancy Lautenbach, Culture Bus program coordinator, says all fall semester trips will focus on cultural and arts events and areas that celebrate Detroit’s 300th anniversary.

Tours for the fall semester will continue through mid-November and are open to all U-M students, faculty and staff. Group accommodations can also be made, and faculty members are encouraged to schedule class trips.

The bus departs from the Museum of Art. Information about the Culture Bus schedule of events can also be found on the Web, www.umich.edu/~arts/programs/culturebus.frames.html.
