The MSU Broad Art Museum connects people with art through experiences that inspire curiosity and inquiry. With a focus on the art of our time—in dialogue with the historical—the museum encourages engagement with timely issues of local relevance and global significance. We are committed to amplifying perspectives and stories by underrepresented and oppressed communities through the arts and creating an inclusive environment for meaningful dialogue about equity and social justice.
- Families at the Broad: With the health and safety of your family in mind, we've moved our monthly in-person Family Day digital. Each month, FAB Club at Home offers monthly creative activities that invite you to make and explore art with your family.
