Preliminary results show that more than 50 donors came together to raise close to $100,000 to support art and design education at U‑M. A few highlights from the day include:
$30,000 to support programming and research
$25,000 to establish a new scholarship for Pre-College participants attending Stamps
More than $20,000 for existing scholarships and student support initiatives
Nearly $14,000 to create the Sustainable Fibers Garden
Stamps makers are excited to welcome the Sustainable Fibers Garden to the school. “We are so grateful to everyone who came together to support the creation of this important resource,” said Jill Verdier, Director of External Relations and Engagement. “Stamps students are passionate about sustainability and look forward to working with the garden to further develop their natural art making practices.”
Everyone who helped make the Sustainable Fibers Garden possible will be welcomed to Stamps to see the impact of their support in action. Watch for more information to be shared soon.
Student Kristina Rogers learned about sustainable art practices at Stamps, and is appreciative that others will have a chance to learn and grow with the addition of the new garden.
