The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum has only been on campus for two years. Its sharp edges may intimidate some of us students, but it houses amazing contemporary art that you won’t want to miss. Below are two Broad exhibitions that open in November that are sure to get you thinking. Admission is free for students!

Future Returns: Contemporary Art from China
Oct. 30, 2014 – March 8, 2015

Today, China is a global powerhouse both politically and economically, but that hasn’t always been the case. Over the past century, this enormous country has undergone a radical shift from a rural society to a modern urban state. In this exhibition, contemporary Chinese artists use painting, photography, installation and digital art to offer their take on this change and to look forward to what China can become. Be sure to stop by the museum to catch an inside glimpse of China: past, present
and future.

East Lansing 2030: Collegeville Re-Envisioned
Nov. 14, 2014 – May 10, 2015

Change seems to be the theme this November as the exhibition East Lansing 2030: Collegeville Re-Envisioned invites architects and designers across the U.S. to envision a future for our humble home East Lansing. The participating architects and designers will exhibit their ideas for real locations we all know in East Lansing, giving us a sneak peek into the possible future of the Grand River corridor. After seeing some of these big plans, you’ll be surprised to see what our little college town has the potential
to become.
