The MSU Broad Art Lab pilot project welcomes the MSU and greater Lansing community to experiment with us as we 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. Great ideas come from listening to a range of voices. From an event concept to a product in the shop, we'd love to hear your ideas. Reach out today to see how we can collaborate in the Art Lab! And when we’re not hosting our own experiments, the Art Lab is open to the community for your next professional workshop, brainstorming retreat, business meeting, or special event. Contact Alysia LaBonte at (517) 884-4815 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the possibilities. A great option to explore during down between sports events.
