The University of Michigan Stamps School of Art & Design’s Penny Stamps Speaker Series is pleased to announce their fall 2016 line-up. The Penny Stamps Speaker Series offers the Ann Arbor community presentations by creative movers and shakers from across the globe. This fall, the Series will present 12 speaker series events including Mark Mothersbaugh, visual artist and co-founder, lead singer, and keyboardist of the popular band DEVO; Fred Gelli, brand designer for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games; Jane Fulton Suri, partner Emeritus at IDEO; and many more.

Speaking about the 2016 speaker series theme of “Seed,” Director of Visitors’ Programs for the Stamps School, Chrisstina Hamilton stated: “Seeds represent the genesis or heart of a creative concept, but they also require a healthy ecosystem to thrive. The speaker series is an active part of the ecosystem that supports creative thought in the Stamps School of Art & Design, the University of Michigan campus, and the community at large.”

A full listing of fall 2016 events can be found at Unless otherwise noted, all programs take place on Thursdays at 5:10pm at the Michigan Theater (603 E. Liberty St.) in downtown Ann Arbor and are free of charge and open to the public.
