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.

April 14 – 5pm to 7pm
