Curated by seventeen Museum Studies students in Professor Susan J. Bandes’s Curatorial Practices course, this exhibition explores the varied ways that we define “home.” It addresses dichotomies such as home/homelessness; temporary/permanent; place/country; reality/memory; animals/humans. Objects from the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, the MSU Museum, and MSU Special Collections are juxtaposed in new ways to encourage viewers to broaden the idea of “home.”

This exhibition is curated by MSU Museum Studies Curatorial Practices students: Hector Acuna, Jerica Aponte, Amber Drury, Erica Fischer, Juli Ginn, MJ Haynes, Amelia Herron, Josh Hutchison, Emma Keaton, Brittany Leatherman, Maddy Smith, Helen Snyder, Emily Somoskey, Erin Tisdel, Isadora Vincent, Thaís Wenstrom, and Zachery R. Wood. Support for this exhibition is provided by the Alan and Rebecca Ross endowed exhibitions fund.
