Broad Art Lab

The MSU Broad Art Lab opened its doors directly across Grand River Avenue from the famous Eli and Edythe Broad Museum.  Funded with a $5 million dollar gift from the Michigan State University Credit Union – this 5 year pilot project welcomes the MSU and greater Lansing community to experiment with them as they break outside the confines of the museum walls. Offering unprecedented access to our growing collection of nearly 8,000 objects, this laboratory houses exhibitions, workshops, events, and social gatherings designed for individual and collective interactions with art and culture.

A testing ground by design, the Art Lab is a space where looking, learning, and socializing become tools for the community to generate innovative responses to the shared needs of our time. Through an ongoing series of open calls, the Art Lab offers an experimental platform to propose ideas, events, and collaborations that are inspired by our collective interests.

The Art Lab is open to the public Tuesday–Sunday, 12–4pm
