Students from the Department of Screen Arts & Cultures dove into the U-M Library’s largest archive, the Robert Altman collection, to create the exhibit “The Many Hats of Robert Altman: A Life in Cinema.” It is on display in the Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery through June 30.

Altman, the director of such films as “M*A*S*H” and “McCabe & Mrs. Miller,” was honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences with an Academy Honorary Award. His diverse style and range of vision and cinematic approaches is captured in the photographs, papers, letters, drawings and artifacts found in the library collection.

The exhibit is part of a larger tribute to Altman, a symposium June 7-8 in the Hatcher Gallery.
