Building on the extraordinary vision and generosity of Eli and Edythe Broad, Michigan State University now has a museum with a bold commitment to exploring contemporary culture and ideas through the prism of contemporary art. Dedicated to experimentation and study, the Eli and Edythe Broad MSU Art Museum has become a laboratory for the new, yet is grounded in historical works dating back to the Greeks.
The Eli and Edythe Broad MSU Art Museum seeks to raise $21.6 million in the Empower Extraordinary campaign. We will achieve this goal with a mix of endowment and annual funds.
To date we have raised $26.3 million, but more private support is needed to achieve our full potential and propel this great university forward.
Director of Development
“When we witness a visitor to the Broad MSU Art Museum come around the corner in one of our exhibition halls and stop in his or her tracks because of something that person is seeing for the first time ever, we know we have succeeded. That’s the power of contemporary art. It can change a person’s life, and it can make people change their perception of a major university—it’s that powerful.”
