Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum

While in East Lansing for our engagement photo shoot Max and I decided to visit the newly finished Art Museum. It doesn't match the old school brick and ivy décor of the other buildings on and surrounding the campus, so it’s hard to miss. The museum was completed back in November of 2012 and took nearly three years to build (although it seemed like WAY longer than that with the announcement being made back in 2007). I must say, job well done East Lansing! While it sticks out like a sore thumb (kind of like when the downtown Kalamazoo Library first opened up) I was impressed with its contents. The extremely contemporary building had three floors and countless rooms filled with original artwork and has drawn international attention.

So, our relaxing little Saturday afternoon at MSU exceeded our expectations (I was unaware that the East Lansing Art Festival was going on as well). Amazing mimosa breakfast at Beggar’s… visiting art museum’s… meandering around art booths… relaxing in the grassy shade with live music in the background… people watching while enjoying a combination of Spartan Wheat and Raspberry Wheat on the balcony of Harpers… Amazing day.
