You Had Me At Hello: 150 Contemporary Artworks That Altered My Consciousness - Part 3

I look at a lot of art. Some of it good, some of it bad. Every once in a while, I come across artwork that fundamentally changes me, even if I don’t understand it at the time. A friend of mine recently asked me which works had had the greatest impact on me over the years, so I compiled my thoughts. This is not a greatest hits list and many artists I love are not included in it. These are all works that have been, for whatever reason, seared into my brain. To be honest, there are a number of artists on this list whose overall practice I am not a particular fan of, yet, they got to me at least once. – Steven Zevitas, Publisher

Museum Admission: Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum

There are world-class museums in Michigan and in this economy, some of them have had trouble keeping their doors open. Luckily, the threat of shutterings has started to disappear, and in the case of Michigan State University’s Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, serious cash is being dropped to ensure that Michigan remains host to some of the very best in art and culture. This $45 million museum ($28 million donated by the Broads) was dedicated November 10th to an art star-studded ceremony, and the attendance since then has continued to grow.
