Penny Stamps Speaker Series presents Chico MacMurtrie: Border Crossers, Part 2

Helmut Stern Auditorium, University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA)
525 S. State Street,
Ann Arbor, MI 48109
Description
Chico MacMurtrie is an award-winning artist, renowned internationally for his large-scale sculptures, whose work combines materiality and robotics. MacMurtrie is currently focusing on the development of new work for Border Crossers, a collection of robots that will eventually be transported and deployed at the border between the United States and Mexico. As part of the Border Crossers project, cross-disciplinary U-M student teams will make and design a robot and an autonomous vehicle, representing all that can be achieved through working together, overcoming roadblocks, and creating solutions for the future. A performance of the student-made robot and vehicle will take place in front of UMMA at 4:30 pm, before the presentation. Border Crossers installation will be on view at the Institute for the Humanities Gallery from February 16 - March 23 with an opening reception and additional performance there immediately following the speaker series talk. In partnership with the Institute for the Humanities.
