Student Debt Explored at The Broad Art Museum
A new exhibit exploring student debt will soon be available for viewing at The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University. The Broad Art Museum is joining forces with an Istanbul-based art organization to look into debt in higher education.
The exhibit “Day After Debt: A Call for Student Loan Relief” will be installed from Sunday through April 12 at the East Lansing museum. The project was initiated by Ahmet Ogut, a Kurdish artist.
According to a museum spokesperson the exhibition responds “to the debt culture that has grown around the demand for higher education” as well as “the pressures that it places upon graduates.”
Included in the collection is a box composed of US currency that has been shredded and a clear plastic bag next to a humorous hierarchy of donation levels.
The Broad Art Museum is located at 547 East Circle Drive in East Lansing on the campus of Michigan State University.
