Broad Art Lab to open on April 14 and 15

MSU students in Museum Studies and the Art History Student Association have been working since November to prepare the first exhibition in the new Broad Art Lab across the street from the Broad Art Museum. Twelve students helped to chose pieces from the museum’s collection, wrote labels and worked on the installation. Their efforts are coordinated by Art History faculty members Susan J. Bandes (also Museum Studies) and Jon Frey and a team from the Broad Art Museum. The is a wonderful opportunity for the community to become acquainted/reacquainted with significant museum holdings and is the first of the collection exhibitions that are envisioned for this new space.

“A Place at the Table” Screening & Reception @ East Arbor Architecture + Gallery
Aug 31 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
"A Place at the Table" Screening & Reception @ East Arbor Architecture + Gallery | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

A Place at the Table is in many ways an MSU project because it features interviews with MSU graduate students, faculty, and staff who attended the 2017 Women’s March.

The 17-minute film attempts to unpack the experience of the 2017 March on Lansing, featuring the voices of 16 attendees. The interviewees reflect on three questions: why they attended the march, what the experience was like, and what we can do to keep the momentum of the march going. As we hear their disembodied voices, we see footage of the march that brings to life the collective experience of that day. The film features diverse voices: Latinxs, American Indian, Black, Queer, and others.

This event is free and open to the public, so come along and bring your friends and family. In case you need more incentive, there will be free food and drinks for all.

The screening is sponsored by Michigan State University, the College of Arts and Letters, the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures, The Doc Lab, the Department of Media and Information, the Diversity Research Network-Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives, the Center for Gender in Global Context, and the Chicano/Latino Studies Program.
