Five years on from when Philanthropist and Michigan State Sniversity (MSU) alumnus Eli Broad pledged $28million USD for a new art museum, the space is finally open. The 46,000-square-foot building features galleries for special exhibitions, modern and contemporary art, new media,
photography and works on paper, and is home to a study collection of more than 7,500 objects spanning the Greek and Roman periods to modern art. The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum is a creation of the illustrious Zaha Hadid, while construction was done by Barton Malow Co.
