MSU Delays Broad Art Museum’s Opening
EAST LANSING (WWJ/AP) – The opening has been postponed from April until the fall for the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum on the campus of Michigan State University.
The East Lansing school said last year that the Zaha Hadid-designed contemporary art museum would open to the public April 21. On Wednesday, the school said a delay in key custom-made glass panes forced the delay.
The university says it now plans to hold off until fall so that students will be on campus. It says the delay isn’t expected to increase the cost of the project.
The Broads have given $28 million for the museum, $21 million for construction and $7 million for acquisitions.
Plans for the museum’s first exhibits include exploring current trends in international video art and artists’ expressions of time.
