Morag Myerscough: Belonging

Thu., Sept. 20, 5:10 p.m.
phone 734-764-0397
stamps-series@umich.edu

Hailed for her ability to transform environments, Morag Myerscough’s vision is rooted in joy. Take her 2014 installation and collaboration with Luke Morgan Temple of Agape for the Festival of Love in London, where she used printed words — the word “LOVE” is recurring — neon colors, and architectural cutouts to invite visitors into her richly unique world. Through these explorative visual narratives, Myerscough offers a stunning and universal visual vocabulary. What Myerscough accomplishes is more than bright colors, bold patterns, and whimsical structures. She creates inclusive places out of ordinary spaces with the hope that all people can feel a sense of belonging. Free

phone 734-764-0395

In October 1947, just two years after the end of World War II, the popular weekly news magazine LIFE sent staff photographers Lisa Larsen and Ralph Morse to cover homecoming weekend at the University of Michigan. The subsequent article, “Michigan Homecoming,” which brought national attention to UM’s athletic program, featured a seven-page spread with photographs of the campus during a much-anticipated football game between the number-one ranked Michigan Wolverines and the University of Minnesota’s Golden Gophers. This installation provides a unique opportunity to view twenty-one images of that weekend, many of which were not published in the original article. Free

Paul Rand was a giant of American design, whose influential career spanned the second half of the twentieth century. His visionary and pithy conceptions of corporate and non-profit brand identities—though often graphically minimal—embody the artist’s complex philosophy, interest in modernist aesthetics, and singular wit. This exhibition features posters, book covers, and packaging designs from Rand’s beginnings as a pro bono designer for arts and culture publications like Direction magazine to his decades of crafting trailblazing corporate design for companies such as IBM.
