Eli and Edithe Broad Art Museum
The Eli and Edithe Broad Art Museum is a contemporary art museum located at Michigan State University.
The 46,000 square feet museum, opened in 2012, is housed in a iconic building designed by Iraqi-born British architect Zaha Hadid, highly recognizable for its pleated stainless steel envelope.
The Broad MSU organizes a lively offer of temporary exhibitions covering many fields of contemporary creativity, including painting, sculpture, installations, new-media, photography and architecture. The Broad Museum, which is also a research center, also houses a study collection with works ranging from Ancient Greece to modern times, which is used to put the contemporary visual arts in an historical context.
The museum, along with exhibition spaces, includes also an educational facility, a works on paper study center, administration offices, a café and a shop as well as a public plaza and a sculpture garden.
The Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University is fully accessible to people with disabilities, a limited number of wheelchairs is also available free of charge.
