New galleries at MSU Museum focus on faculty and student research

Two new galleries at the MSU Museum are dedicated to student and faculty research at MSU. Exhibitions in The Sandbox gallery will highlight more experimental exhibitions while the New Horizons space will feature research from the National Science Foundation Broader Impacts, art-science residencies and a rotation of other student and faculty research.


These new changes demonstrate the MSU Museum’s commitment to serving as visible catalyst for teaching, learning and research at the intersection of the arts, sciences and humanities, as well as a vital collaboratory that advances student and faculty success at MSU.


The inaugural exhibit in The Sandbox gallery spotlights a small sample of the innovative work developed by faculty and students in the acclaimed Games for Entertainment and Learning Lab at MSU. The GEL Lab seeks to “design innovative prototypes, techniques and complete games for entertainment and learning and to advance state of the art knowledge about social and individual effects of digital games.”


In the “Gameplay” exhibit, MSU Museum visitors are invited to explore and enjoy games created by faculty and students in the GEL Lab, and to contemplate the impact of video games on our society.
