The School of Information is partnering with the School of Art and Design on this upcoming Penny Stamps lecture, with support from AIGA Detroit -- the professional association for design -- and the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. Established with the generous support of alumna Penny Stamps, this series brings respected emerging and established artists/designers from a broad spectrum of media to the university to conduct a public lecture and engage with students, faculty, and the larger university and Ann Arbor communities.
All programs are free of charge and open to the public.
