Palmer Commons

Wolverine Press & Printing Services Exhibit

The Wolverine Press & Printing Services exhibit is a small exploration into official University of Michigan imagery from the 1950s and 1960s. The images included were printed from the original letterpress blocks used by Printing services to produced pamphlets and other assorted documents, and include the Peach Mountain Observatory radio telescope, dental diagrams, images of campus from that period, and more. The exhibit can be found near the 3rd floor Info Desk.

Lamp-free, Ultra-bright 4K Laser Projector at Palmer!

If both image detail and image stability are critical to you, we are your go-to venue! You can directly benefit from both the 4K LASER's advanced resolution and solid-state illumination platform.

In Forum Hall, our 140 seat auditorium, our 4K Laser projector delivers bright, stable, consistent illumination and color-accurate imagery.  The display is even smoother and more lifelike than the best HD projectors on the market today. Colors are more saturated. Frame rates higher.
