Broad Art Museum
Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum. The “art” is both the museum structure and the rotating contemporary exhibits. The structure, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid, opened in 2012 and has a striking facade of pleated stainless steel and glass, signaling the museum and the university’s dynamic vision. The exhibits are dedicated to exploring contemporary culture and ideas through the probing gaze of international artists. Current exhibits and information: http://broadmuseum.msu.edu. Eli Broad, a 1954 graduate of MSU, provided the core funding for this museum and is also known to biologists as the funder of the Broad Institute (genomics) at MIT & Harvard.
