MSU arts weekend

On Saturday morning enjoy discussion about the Mackinac Island Manoogian Art Collection, followed by a special presentation. The afternoon features a student fashion show and an evening musical performance by the MSU Alumni group “The Dangling Participles“.

The Dangling Participles are a Lansing band with a diverse song set ranging from Americana and rock to jazz and blues. They’ve been performing genre-hopping originals and fun covers throughout mid-Michigan since 2015, bringing together their love of songwriting, harmonizing, and arranging, and pairing those with a lively on-stage performance.
