Penny W. Stamps Speaker Series


Established with the generous support of alumna Penny W. Stamps, the Speaker Series brings respected emerging and established artists/designers from a broad spectrum of media to the School to conduct a public lecture and engage with students, faculty, and the larger University and Ann Arbor communities. Additional support is provided by our media sponsor, Michigan Radio.  Unless otherwise noted, all programs take place on Thursdays at 5:10 pm at the historic Michigan Theater, located at 603 E. Liberty Street in downtown Ann Arbor, and are free of charge and open to the public.  For more information on the Stamps Series, please visit  http://art-design.umich.edu/stamps.

This playlist collects video documentation of Stamps lectures from Winter 2009 to the present.  Earlier lectures (2006 - 2009) can be viewed on iTunes via our Penny W. Stamps Series Podcast.
