EAST LANSING, MI— MSU Federal Credit Union is pleased to host an opening reception for MSU’s Child Development Lab (CDL) artwork exhibit on Sunday, January 26, 2014, at MSUFCU’s headquarters from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Through our partnership with Michigan State University and The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, members and the community are invited to attend this event showcasing children’s artwork creatively inspired by renowned Detroit artist, Beverly Fishman, whose work was recently on display at The Broad Art Museum.
"Supporting local students and community-based arts education is one way MSUFCU is able to stay true to our commitment to giving back to the community.” said Patrick McPharlin, MSUFCU’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "At MSUFCU, we are committed to making a positive impact on as many people’s lives as possible and through this exhibit we are able to give back to the arts and arts education while contributing to the success of children in our local community.”
MSU Federal Credit Union, the world’s largest university-based credit union, offers a full range of personal- and business-related financial services to Michigan State University and Oakland University faculty, staff, students, alumni association members, and their families worldwide in addition to a variety of select employee groups. Founded in 1937 by a few MSU professors and employees, MSUFCU now has twelve branches, over 180,000 members, more than $2.5 billion in assets, and over 530 employees.
The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, a new Zaha Hadid-designed contemporary art museum at Michigan State University, is dedicated to exploring global contemporary culture and ideas through art. Opened on November 10, 2012, the dynamic 46,000-square-foot museum serves as both a teaching institution and a cultural hub for East Lansing and the region. In keeping with MSU’s commitment to applying knowledge to benefit society and further the global common good, the Broad MSU’s program of original and traveling exhibitions, initiatives with living artists, performances, and educational offerings for students, faculty, and the community make the museum a center for questioning and understanding the modern world. With a collection containing 7,500 objects from the Greek and Roman periods through the Renaissance and on to the Modern, the Broad MSU is uniquely able to contextualize the wide range of contemporary art practices within a firm historical context. The museum is named in honor of Eli and Edythe Broad, longtime supporters of the university who provided the lead gift of $28 million.
