A space for experimentation, the MSU Broad Art Lab offers an opportunity to imagine new possibilities around the display and interpretation of art. In this instance, undergraduate students from the department’s Fall 2018 Cognitive Psychology honors course (instructor: Dr. Jan Brascamp) will develop the interpretive content for a show of Op art from the MSU Broad collection. Op art, short for “optical art”, is a genre that involves forms of optical illusions. But rather than providing an art historical analysis of the works on view, the psychology students will assess them from their own disciplinary perspective. This experiment will be enhanced by the use of a new “smart label” technology initiative funded by The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation in development at the MSU Broad.
The Art and Psychology of Perception is curated by Steven L. Bridges, Associate Curator. Support for this exhibition is provided by the Elizabeth Halsted endowment fund.Read more

Trevor Noah is the host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning The Daily Show on Comedy Central and has been part of the show since 2014 when he was a contributor.
Noah’s comedy specials have sold more DVDs than any other standup on the African continent, and his last one-hour special: Lost in Translation was released on Comedy Central.
In November 2016, Trevor released his first book Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, which was an instant New York Times bestseller. It is a collection of personal stories about growing up in South Africa during the last gasps of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that came with its demise. The book was nominated for two NAACP Image Awards, one for Outstanding Literary Work by a Debut Author and another for Outstanding Literary Work in the Biography/Auto-Biography category.
Founded in 2007, the Signature Lecturer Series allows notable public figures to interact and engage with the faculty, students, and greater community of Michigan State University.
