Join us for a virtual panel discussion with designers from the AIGA Get out the Vote: Empowering the Women’s Vote” exhibition at Stamps Gallery. Hear about the ideas behind their poster designs, why they believe it is important to vote, and what the 19th amendment means to them. Panelists will include Stamps School of Art & Design Professors Audrey Bennett and Hannah Smotrich, and Michigan State University Professor Kelly Salchow Macarthur. Panelists will be joined by the U‑M Museum of Art Student Engagement Council members Emily Considine and Sarah Jacob who have worked closely with partners across campus to develop voter participation initiatives for U‑M students. The discussion will be moderated by Stamps Gallery Outreach and Public Engagement Coordinator Jennifer Junkermeier-Khan and followed by a Q&A. U‑M Students, Faculty, and Staff will be able to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, and vote early at UMMA every weekday between Sept. 24 and election day.
