“Electra and Bill:  Honoring an Immeasurable Contribution”

Reception and Gallery Exhibition 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Remarks 6:30 p.m.

The new Stamelos Gallery Center was made possible by a gift from longtime supporters of UM-Dearborn’s arts community, Electra and William Stamelos. This new climate-controlled space will allow for the presentation of a wider variety of exhibitions and programming to new audiences, better preservation of objects, enriched partnership opportunities and the creation of a learning laboratory for students, faculty, staff and community members.

Make a gift to support the Stamelos Gallery Center here.

William and Electra Stamelos
Electra Stamelos was a beloved UM-Dearborn art lecturer from 1980 to 1994 and an accomplished artist. She also held the position as Director of Art Acquisitions and Exhibitions for UM-Dearborn for many years and taught on the Ann Arbor campus. Bill was a devoted university donor and gallery volunteer for many years, which included acting as honorary curator for a period of time. Electra and Bill contributed greatly to the university's art collection for decades including donating the majority of Electra's body of work and many other art pieces they collected throughout their years together.
