    I am really looking forward to this piece of artwork.

    The new MSU art museum will indeed be a fascinating and wonderful addition to campus and East Lansing. As Bill notes, MSU and East Lansing are devoid of innovative architecture, unless you appreciate the tube parking ramp.
    Take a look at UM. Within the last year (or so) a beautiful new art museum (the interior galleries are supremely functional and attractive), and a fascinating new Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. What are they doing right? That endowment maybe.

  3. Students for a wild campus

    The art museum ground breaking will be met with a force of students not protesting the building of the museum, but protesting the destruction of the wetlands on the site.

    The rally is backed by the group MSU Students for a Wild Campus, and the goal is to make the contractors and builders agree to re-build the wetlands and wildflower meadows they destroyed on site.

    The estimated cost of the museum is 44million dollars, the cost to rebuild the wetland and wildflower meadows is a mere $2,000. Think about it.
