Art museum boom

Despite the state's rapidly shrinking arts budget, the institutional support of art in Michigan continues to grow. Michigan State revealed its architectural plans today for a new contemporary art museum in East Lansing. It looks great. The University of Michigan Museum of Art is also undergoing a major expansion and is set to open in early 2009.

These, of course, join the expanded Detroit Institute of Arts and the still newish Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit down the street on Woodward.
