Since 1850, the Medical School has graduated physicians and surgeons who have helped solve all the great medical mysteries of their era, said Dean Allen S. Lichter during the Schools 150th anniversary convocation Oct. 1. Antonnia Novello, former U.S. surgeon general, and neurosurgeon Keith Black joined seven other speakers, all of whom spoke with pride and gratitude of fond memories from their years of working, learning and teaching at the Medical School and U-M Hospitals. Since the School opened Oct. 3, 1850, when medical school tuition was $5, more than 18,000 physicians have graduated from its highly respected program. Click here for story. Photo by Paul Jaronski
Run by the Health System since 1994, Motor Meals serves two meals six days a week to more than 200 local residents, with an optional bag lunch for the seventh day.
More than 250 volunteers keep the program running, and they recently expanded into rural areas around Ann Arbor.

The exhibition incorporates photographs, sculpture, video and a 20-foot scroll illustrating artist Mike Rogers theory of the vehicles evolution and designs for a 1999 model, should the El Camino make a comeback.
Rogers, who says the project mixes fantasy and fact, was a reporter and associate editor with both Fortune magazine and the Los Angeles Herald Examiner before receiving a master of fine arts degree in 1966 from the Otis College of Art and Design.

The exhibition, curated by Brian Stechschulte and Mike Underwood, examines the implications of the use of gesture as a point of departure in recent painting, and investigates the postmodern dilemma that a use of gesture suggests.
Artists featured in the exhibition, in addition to Arbizo, are David Reed, Suzanne McClelland, Giles Lyon, Jesse Lambert, James Nares, Andrea Belag, Eva Lundsager, Richmond Burton, Lydia Dona, Fabian Marcaccio, Rochelle Feinstein and Elizabeth Cooper.
While gesture figures conspicuously in each artists work, it operates alternately as a reference, representation, appropriated form, concrete form, commentary, and/or handwriting. Photo courtesy School of Art and Design
