Children's Artwork on Display at MSUFCU's HQ
MSUFCU is excited to support art education in our local community by displaying artwork created by the children of Michigan State University's Child Development Lab (CDL) in our headquarters lobby. Through our partnership with Michigan State University and The Broad Art Museum, the CDL children are displaying their artwork, inspired by renowned Detroit artist, Beverly Fishman, whose work was recently on display at The Broad Art Museum.
Children celebrated with their families and representatives of the The Broad Art Museum at a reception held at MSUFCU headquarters on Sunday, January 26, 2014. Remarks were made by MSUFCU’s Vice President of Corporate Relations, Sarah Bohan, The Broad Art Museum’s Deputy Director and Curator of Contemporary Art, Alison Gass, and the MSU CDL Director, Laurie Linscott. Through the CDL exhibit, we are able to give back to the arts and arts education while contributing to the success of children in our local community.
Educators of The Broad Art Museum worked with children ages 3 to 5 of MSU’s Child Development Lab to teach them about color, shape, pattern, and movement, using Fishman’s artwork as a guide. This resulted in 160 pieces of artwork created from each child’s unique vision of Fishman’s work.
As the Head of Painting at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Beverly Fishman, is known for her bright, large-scale, visual representations of EKGs, EEGs, and neuron pike readouts, which are deeply contemporary in idea and approach.
Members and the community can visit MSUFCU’s headquarters to view the work on display alongside two of Beverly Fishman’s own pieces. The art will remain up until May 18, 2014, and can be viewed during normal business hours.
