Graphic designer Hannah Smotrich’s work centers on issues of community, cultural history, identity and voice. Her projects explore the stories of our individual lives and the collective narratives of our communities, the many ways in which we communicate—and the walls we construct that complicate connection. Recent work includes a participatory public art project at the Jewish Cultural Festival in Krakow, Poland, an integrated system of street signs and publications for Neighborhood Heritage Trails in Washington, DC, and an exhibit for Museum L-A on the lives and community of textile workers in Lewiston, Maine.
ABOUT THE PENNY STAMPS LECTURE SERIES
Established with the generous support of alumna Penny W. Stamps, the Distinguished Visitors Program 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.
