Current & Upcoming

Stamps Gallery Reopens to University of Michigan Community

Stamps Gallery welcomes University of Michigan faculty, staff, and students to our Fall 2020 exhibitions two days per week, Tuesdays and Fridays, 2 pm-7 pm, starting Tuesday, September 15. Mask mandates are in full effect, as are capacity limits and other visitor expectations. We ask that all visitors review our COVID-19 Stamps Gallery policies prior to your arrival. 

Following guidance from University administrators and public health officials in response to COVID-19, Stamps Gallery is unable to welcome the general public to our gallery at this time. You must have a valid MCard for entry. 

Both the general public and University of Michigan faculty, staff, and students are welcome to join the gallery for our virtual events this fall, to be announced over the coming weeks. We are working hard to make our website and virtual programs become the platform where we can engage with the wider public on the themes and questions that the artists and designers are asking us to consider in this fall season of exhibitions.
