The lower level profile of the iconic Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum can now be seen on the MSU campus. The building, designed by world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid, is anticipated to bring international attention to the art museum, MSU and the State of Michigan. The facility is named in honor of alumnus Eli Broad who, with his wife Edythe, provided the lead gift for the building as well as for acquisitions, exhibitions and operations. Near what will soon be the study collection of the art museum, some of the university planning team involved with bringing the project to completion are pictured here from left: Bill Latta, acting associate vice president for University Advancement; Mark Terman, Director for Principal Gifts; Linda Stanford, associate provost for academic services; Dan Bollman, design administrator for Physical Plant; and also Kevin Waldman, project director, Barton Malow Company.
Approximately $7 million is needed to complete art museum fundraising toward the $40 million goal. Attractive significant gift naming opportunities still are available for special features as well as garden, exhibit, administrative and educational spaces.
