MSUFCU Student Art Exhibit Opens to Public
Few things outside of art allow us such an immediate and individualized understanding of how someone else views the world.
You now have an opportunity to gain a new perspective through someone else’s eyes as the 2024 MSUFCU Student Art Exhibit opens to public viewing and voting. This marks the 17th year Michigan State University Federal Credit Union has hosted the event showcasing the creativity and consciousness of high school students across Greater Lansing.
Voting on student artwork can be conducted online at msufcuart.com or in person during business hours at the exhibit’s 2024 host site, MSUFCU Headquarters 2 at 3899 Coolidge Road in East Lansing. The public opening began Jan. 28 following a VIP exhibit preview and runs through Feb. 23.
In addition to public voting in categories that include the Social Media Award, People’s Choice Award and School Spirit Award, three local artists also rank pieces for juried awards. 10 artists will receive honorary mentions. A billboard donated by the Arts Council of Greater Lansing will run after the event featuring the juried first-place winner’s exhibit entry. The winners of the Student Art Exhibit will be announced at a special awards ceremony at MSUFCU HQ2 on March 3.
Participating schools this year include Charlotte High School, DeWitt High School, East Lansing High School, Everett High School, Fowlerville High School, Grand Ledge High School, Haslett High School, Holt High School, Lansing Catholic High School, Lansing Christian High School, Leslie High School, Mason High School, Potterville High School.

Art aficionados will be able to view a wide range of mediums from the 2024 entries, including drawing, painting, photography and 3D art including sculpting. The MSUFCU Student Art Exhibit is sponsored by 517 Magazine. For more information on the exhibit, visit msufcuart.com.
