New Art Museum

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State University's trustees have approved the start of construction for a new art museum on the East Lansing campus.

The school says it will break ground March 16, 2010 for the Eli and Edythe Broad (BROHD) Art Museum. It's expected to open in early 2012.

In 2007, Michigan State alumnus Eli Broad and his wife Edythe donated $18.5 million toward building the museum. The couple also gave $7.5 million to commission a sculpture, buy art works and fund operations and an endowment.
