The arts are alive and thriving here in the Greater Lansing area. You don’t want to miss all the public art installations dotting the Lansing landscape plus all the galleries throughout the region. The culture of Greater Lansing ranges from large scale murals to the smallest of galleries. We welcome you to take in (and maybe even take home) all the innovative, thought-provoking, gutsy, raw and exquisitely beautiful works of art that Greater Lansing has to offer.
Wander around Lansing Community College in downtown Lansing and admire all the sculptures that were produced by either students, faculty or alumni. They are situated outdoors throughout the campus. Or head to Michigan State University and marvel at the contemporary art installations in the world-class Eli & Edythe Broad Art Museum. Not only are the displays inside very thought-provoking, the building itself, designed by Pritzker-Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid, a work of art all in itself. Greater Lansing is also home to great traditional galleries like the Lansing Art Gallery in downtown Lansing or Saper Galleries in East Lansing plus art-based class opportunities offered at places like REACH Studio Art Center.
