Giving Blueday 2024

Building a Student Exhibition Fund at the Stamps School

Get ready to celebrate and support students, projects, and initiatives at the Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design on Giving Blueday. This annual tradition of giving at U‑M kicks off at midnight on Wednesday, March 13, 2024.

At Stamps, the focus is on building a Student Exhibition Fund. This fund will create opportunities for students to experiment with exhibition and advance critical skills such as developing, installing, and disseminating their work, and engaging the community through exhibition events.
