Join us as we explore amazing architecture and artwork in nearby Lansing! We’ll begin with a tour of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University, learning about MSU Broad’s architecture and history before touring the exciting exhibition: Kahlo Without Borders. Curated by Cristina Kahlo—Frida Kahlo’s grandniece and an artist in her own right, Javier Roque Vázquez Juárez, and MSU Broad Art Museum Executive Director Mónica Ramírez-Montagut, Kahlo Without Borders will include photographs and facsimiles from family archives, from the Cristina Kahlo collection, and from the Oaxaca Museum of Stamp Collecting, and never-before-seen archives from Medical Center ABC, where Frida Kahlo was interned.
Afterward, enjoy a delicious lunch at the historic Lansing Brewing Company in the heart of downtown Lansing. We’ll then head to the Michigan State Capitol for a guided building tour, followed by a meeting with the lead decorative painter to learn about how he keeps 19th-century art practices alive to maintain the building’s nine acres of hand-painted art. We’ll finish the trip with a scenic stroll down ArtPath—a public art and mural walk created by Michigan artists and located along the Lansing River Trail. Fee includes bus transportation, snack, lunch, admission, guided tours and all gratuities. Expect a significant amount of standing and walking. Dress for the weather!
