The Collection

The Eli and Edythe Broad Museum at Michigan State University is unique among contemporary art museums by virtue of the historical collection we have inherited from the Kresge Art Museum, formerly the art museum of MSU. This collection, which spans cultural production from ancient Greece and Rome and pre-Columbian cultures through Medieval and Renaissance art to the modern and contemporary will enable the MSU Broad to explore the art of our time through the long lens of art history. Highlights of the museum's collection include: Greek and Roman antiquities; medieval and Renaissance illuminations; Old Master paintings; 19th century American paintings; 20th century sculpture by artists such as Alexander Calder and Jenny Holzer; and works by contemporary artists such as Chuck Close and Ann Hamilton. Collection growth and new acquisitions will focus on modern and contemporary works (post 1945).
