The University Museum of Art, never
the most popular tourist attraction on
campus, has made a serious bid to
change its image.
The work of Frank Stella, inter-
nationally acclaimed painter and print
maker, has come to Ann Arbor, and
area art aficionados think this could
help the museum's reputation immen-
"THIS SHOW very much puts us on
the map," said Museum Director Evan
Mauer of the newly installed Frank
Stella Prints: 1967-1982. "The vibes are
so good. This will help us get more big
shows .. .it shows what a great univer-
sity museum can do."
The exhibit, which opened Saturday
night, has 83 prints, and takes up all of
the second floor exhibition gallery.
About 500 people attended the
opening, and about 50,000 are expected
for the exhibition's two-month stay, ac-
cording to Mauer.
"It's a real coup to get something this
major in Ann Arbor," said Lois Baru, a
museum administrator and tour guide.
"The exposure the museum is getting
is fantastic," she added. "The support
from the community is amazing."
PROFESSOR Richard Axsom, of the
University of Michigan at Dearborn,
approached Stella with an idea for the
print exhibit several years ago. Said
Stella: "I didn't think it was a good idea
at the time, but as I made more prints it
began to make more sense. Then the
University got funding from the
National Endowment for the Arts and it
After its stay in Ann Arbor, the 'show
will travel across the country and even-
tually end up in New York's Whitney
While the Stella exhibit puts the
museum's current modern art collec-
tion in a good night, Maurer admitted
that the permanent modern art collec-
tion is not "the best." He said the
enormous expense of "quality" modern
art has made it hard to acquire good
IN ADDITION, Maurer said it would
be hard to justify making expensive
acquisitions with the economy in its
The opening of the exhibit, however,
did coincide with -an improvement in
the museum's Asian Galleries. A $3,000
renovation of the gallery, which con-
tains oriental paintings, pottery, and
furniture, was completed a week before
the Stella opening.
According to Maurer, the museum's
Asian Collection is one of the best in the
world. The renovation, Maurer said,
was done to make the presentation
more natural, by displaying the art on
Tatami (rice) mats, and by recreating
a 19th century Chinese scholar's study.
THE STUDENTS who saw the exhibit
Were, in general, impressed. "I like the
fact that they have art happening now,"
said LSA junior Claira Lieberman.
About one third of the people at the
opening were students-the rest were a
mix of University faculty and culture
seeking Ann Arborites.
"I like the way it's set up," said city
art dealer Claire Spittler. "It's much
bigger than I expected-it actually fills
the room. I'm very impressed with the
But, as can be expected, not everyone
appreciated Stella's abstract prints.
Said Nathan Hayes: "Some of his work
doesn't seem to take much skill."

Guglielmo Marconi was
able to see communications rev-
olutionized by his development
of the first successful system of
radio telegraphy-the wireless.
His first experimental transmis-
sions were no more than a few
feet. But, within a quarter of a
century, he had advanced his
system to the point that a radio
message sent from England
could be received in Australia.
E-Systems scientists and
engineers continue to expand
the technology he began. Today,
designed and developed by
E-Systems engineers is used
extensively around the world for
line-of-sight or satellite communi-
cations, digital communications
and applications requiring micro-
tactical radios and microminia-
ture HF VHF and UHF equipment.
In addition to communica-
tions, E-Systems engineers are
solving marny of the world's
toughest problems in antennas,
data acquisition, processing,
storage and retrieval systems
and other systems applications for
intelligence and reconnaissance.
Often, the developed systems
are the first-of-a-kind.
