Those of us who live and work in and around Lansing Michigan are eagerly anticipating the spring 2012 opening of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum. Designed by Zaha Hadid, the museum is on track to be the cultural hub of both Michigan State University and the community at large. It is certainly a stunning addition to the campus.
Since the museum’s opening is generating a creative buzz, Michigan State University has put together a Countdown to the Broad Lecture Series, which begins this Thursday, October 13. Although we can’t yet stroll through art-filled galleries, we can learn a bit about contemporary art, culture, and ideas.
Join Gregory Volk or his talk on “Surprising Kayaks and Enthralling Volcanoes: On the Importance of International Art. Mr. Volk is an art critic and freelance curator based in New York City. October 13, 2011.
Join Peter Plagens as he discusses “Painting Today: In a Corner by Not Cornered”. Mr. Plagens is a painter, art critic, and author based in New York City. December 8, 2011.
Prior to the lecture, enjoy dinner at The English Inn, a DiRoNA restaurant with an award winning wine list. Our Lansing Restaurant is approximately 15 miles southwest of the University of Michigan campus in East Lansing.
We look forward to welcoming many art-enthusiasts to our Lansing Michigan Bed and Breakfast once the Broad Art Museum opens next spring.
The Countdown to the Broad Lecture Series takes place Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. at the 118 Psychology Building on the MSU campus in East Lansing. Additional information may be found at The Broad.
