MSU Museum Heals Through Art for Sister Survivors

MSU Museum Heals Through Art for Sister Survivors

EAST LANSING - The Michigan State University Museum opened a new exhibit to the public on April 16.

The teal art displays are a reflection of the emotions felt from the sister survivors and their families.

It has been about 2 1/2 years since Larry Nassar was fired and the healing process between victims and the university was slow to start.

Teal flags and ribbons have adorned MSU and Downtown East Lansing, and today more permanent commemorations to those who spoke up were put in place around MSU.

A young Beech Tree was recently planted adjacent to the museum to honor the sister survivors.

There are 9 different pieces in the exhibit from tapestry's to tiles, and some very personal items from survivors on display.

One display showed various things given to survivors by Larry Nassar.

The museum filled to standing capacity on the main floor and overflow areas on the second floor were needed also.

Governor Whitmer attended the ceremony and addressed those gathered.

"The survivors and allies who put this together did so because of the strength that it gives them to tell their stories, to take back their voices, to own their own narratives."

A handful of sister survivors and the Governor cut a ribbon to officially open the exhibit.

The ceremony also featured videos from MSU Interim President Satish Udpa and Michigan's 8th District U.S. Congressional Rep. Elissa Slotkin.

The exhibit is set to be at the MSU museum through March of 2020.
