Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid once said, “there are 360 degrees, so why stick to just one?” She applied that attitude literally in the design of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University (MSU Broad), but since we opened in 2012, we’ve sought to utilize every angle in an effort to push the boundaries of what a museum can be.

But in this section, we narrow our focus to the specific people who shine bright in our community, as well as the businesses who work hard to make our lives better.
