Michele Oka Doner

Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty
Reaching back to nature primordial and existing through existential transformation is the work of Michele Oka Doner. In her career of over four decades Oka Doner has taken nature at its most basic level – a stick, a twig, a palm leaf and the spiraling of galaxies – and made it the subject of her art. In her talk Oka Doner will present a selection of her public art projects, sculpture, jewelry, furniture and design objects. Oka Doner’s work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. Supported by the UM Museum of Art.
| Michele Oka Doner’s lecture is a part of the Penny W. Stamps Distinguished Visitors Series. With the generous support of Art & Design alumna Penny W. Stamps, the Distinguished Visitors Series brings to the School a broad spectrum of emerging and established artists/designers to engage with students, faculty, staff and the larger University and Ann Arbor communities. Depending on the length of their stays and their particular areas of expertise, visitors present public lectures, work with students, participate in panel discussions, generate site-specific works, and give public performances.
