To honor the University of Michigan Class of 2021, 29 undergraduate students from the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design created a chalk paint mural on the street outside of the Rackham Graduate School (915 E. Washington Street), between Thayer Street and Fletcher Street. The mural is on view from Monday, April 26-Sunday, May 2, 2021 as part of the university’s commencement celebrations.
The students were led by Stamps alumnae Yen Azzaro (BFA ‘03) and Liz Guilmet (BFA ‘08), in collaboration with the President’s Office and University Development Events.
The Michigan Daily covered the mural installation on Sunday, April 25, interviewing Stamps student Natalie Guisinger about the experience.
“This signifies the effort us seniors have put into these past four years,” Guisinger said. “It is interesting because we are in a unique situation of knowing what college was like before a pandemic, and now we are emerging into the real world where things are very uncertain. But I suppose one certainty is being able to celebrate us graduating.”
