2017 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.

We are very pleased to welcome Brian Kennedy, the President, Director, and CEO of the Toledo Museum of Art, as the juror for this show.
