Stamps lecturers Melanie Manos and Andrew Thompson are featured in Re:Formation, a new exhibition that will be on display in Toledo and Ann Arbor. Presented by Gallery Project, Re:Formation features over 50 local, regional, and national artists addressing the push back that is occurring in communities nationwide around issues such as water access and safety, marginalization of the poor, the murder and incarceration of African American youth, and decay of urban infrastructure.
