The Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design is excited to welcome you to our 10th Anniversary Celebration, which coincides with U‑M’s 2022 Homecoming and Parents and Family Weekend.

September 20, 2022 marks ten years since the naming of our school in honor of Penny W. Stamps for the remarkable gift she and her husband, E. Roe Stamps made to support art and design education at the University of Michigan. We are excited to celebrate this milestone and reflect on the legacy of the school with Dean Carlos Francisco Jackson, who will share his vision for amplifying the impact of art and design in our communities.

On Friday, September 23, RSVP to join us for a special series of 10th Anniversary Celebration events, including a guided building tour, performances by faculty, current students and alumni, remarks by Stamps Dean Carlos Jackson and the President of the University of Michigan, and an outdoor reception.

Additional weekend events (no registration required) will include a Penny W. Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series presentation by acclaimed artist Michele Oka Doner, and tours of current exhibitions LaToya Ruby Frazier: Flint Is Family In Three Acts and Respond/​Resist/​Rethink at Stamps Gallery.
