Stamps Director of Visitors Programs Chrisstina Hamilton discussed the latest Penny Stamps Speaker Series lineup with Eric Gallippo for the Ann Arbor District Library’s Pulp.
For the last 12 years, Chrisstina Hamilton has been working out a puzzle of sorts for thousands of people to enjoy. As director of visitors’ programs for the University of Michigan’s STAMPS School of Art & Design, Hamilton organizes the school’s popular Penny Stamps Speaker Series.
“It’s sort of like this 3‑D Rubik’s Cube kind of thing when you’re trying to put it together, and it’s incredibly difficult because you lose pieces here and there,” Hamilton said. “People want to line up, and you think, ‘We can’t have this come after that.’ But somehow, miraculously, it ends up all coming together.”
The free guest speaker series takes place Thursdays at Ann Arbor’s Michigan Theatre (with a few exceptions) and features artists that represent a spectrum of media, backgrounds, and viewpoints.
