2014 Alumni Exhibition

Each year, our Alumni exhibition offers an opportunity for Stamps graduates from across the country and internationally to share their current creative work. Held to coincide with Ann Arbor’s expansive summer art fair, the exhibition fills two galleries—Slusser Gallery on U-M’s north campus and Work•Ann Arbor in downtown Ann Arbor. Volunteers are needed to serve on the committee to help plan and execute this all alumni event.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Amber Connell.

2014: Unintended Consequences

The theme for the 2014 Stamps Alumni Juried Exhibition is Unintended Consequences.
Theme statement: "A teacher becomes the student; anger becomes acceptance; cancer research becomes a cure for baldness; a painting becomes a film. For good or bad, our lives, our work and our art are filled with Unintended Consequences."

Work will be displayed July 14 — August 2, 2014, during the Ann Arbor Art Fair, and three jury prizes of $500 will be awarded.
