Michigan State University’s Broad Art Museum Announces Expansion Plans

EAST LANSING, MICHIGAN—The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University has announced plans for a satellite space across from its Zaha Hadid-designed main building, Haley Hansen reports for the Lansing State Journal. The museum’s expansion will house a research center and exhibition spaces for the museum’s 7,500-piece collection, as well as study and classroom facilities and public gathering spaces in the annex’s 5,000 square feet. The Michigan State University Federal Credit Union has contributed $5.5 million to the space’s renovation.

The Broad Art Museum intends to open the expansion in April 2018 following a refurbishment and operate it for five years. The downtown East Lansing site was previously hosted a Taco Bell. Negotiations for the Broad Art Museum’s takeover of the site began in March 2016 following the appointment of Marc-Olivier Wahler as the museum’s director. The Broad Art Museum opened its main building on Grand River Avenue in November 2012.
