Broad Art Museum receives MSU Federal Credit Union Artist Studio Series Endowment

Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University has announced a $1,000,000 donation to the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University for the MSU Federal Credit Union Artist Studio Series Endowment. This gift will bring renowned artists to MSU’s campus to provide engagement opportunities for MSU students and faculty, school children throughout Mid-Michigan, and the general public. The first visiting artist of the series is Alyson Shotz, whose exhibit, “Pattern: Follow the Rules,” is at the Broad starting Friday through June 23.

With this new residency program, nationally and internationally known artists will lead art-making activities, lectures, and community events. Visiting artists will travel to schools in the Greater Lansing area to help support local arts programs, and MSU students and faculty will spend time with these artists, learning from the best in the industry. The endowment will also provide the local community with access to lectures and exhibits offered by the visiting artists-in-residence.

MSU Federal Credit Union, the world’s largest university-based credit union, offers a full range of personal- and business-related financial services to Michigan State University and Oakland University faculty, staff, students, alumni association members, and their families worldwide in addition to a variety of select employee groups. Founded in 1937 by a few MSU professors and employees, MSUFCU now has eleven branches, over 170,000 members, more than $2.3 billion in assets, and over 490 employees.
