(B)road to Ten
(B)road to Ten
The MSU Broad Art Museum, together with Gala Co-Chairs and Host Committee, proudly celebrated our 10th anniversary year with (B)road to Ten, a premier fundraising event benefitting the new Open Storage Center—a project designed to bring major parts of our collection out of private, offsite storage and into the museum for public enjoyment.
The memorable evening included a scrumptious strolling dinner, bar with signature drinks, spectacular light displays, live entertainment, incredible art, and more.
Thanks to the generous support of MSU Federal Credit Union, Alan + Rebecca Ross, and Dr. Teresa K. Woodruff + Dr. Thomas V. O’Halloran, every dollar raised by this event will directly support the Open Storage Center project.

The MSU Broad Art Museum’s collection contains over 10,000 works ranging from ancient art to modern and contemporary pieces, spanning the globe and the range of art history. However, only a portion of this collection is displayed at any given time due to space limitations and other factors.
To address some of these constraints, and to provide greater access to our collection and the arts more broadly, the Open Storage Center project was born. Open Storage is a concept that provides a behind-the-scenes look at ‘stored’ items not typically on view to the public.
By constructing an Open Storage Center in the museum’s lower level, we can enhance community access to the museum’s ever-growing collection and create additional opportunities for continued engagement with the arts.
