Maggie Wiebe (BFA 22) is featured as one of The University Record’s annual series profiling five prospective graduates who highlight the range of experiences and people who attend U‑M. In the article, Wiebe discusses her Integrative Project, her work and research at Stamps, and an ongoing project with fellow Stamps senior Jessie Rice: a dye‑, yarn- and paper-making garden.

Maggie Wiebe has always known she wanted to study art.

I’ve been doing it my whole life,” she said. My mom always says I’ve been drawing since I was 2. It’s never been a question for me that I would do something art-related, but rather what more specific art-related thing I’ll end up doing.”

She and a friend, fellow Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design graduating senior Jessie Rice, are hoping to do something that stokes their love for art and is good for the environment.

For the past year or so, the two have tended to a dye‑, yarn- and paper-making garden at the Campus Farm. They have helped grow indigo, marigolds, cosmos and chamomile, as well as flax that will be used to make linen and paper.
