As Michigan's land-grant university museum, Michigan State University Museum is committed to serving its community. Primarily a research and academic teaching unit, it offers education, exhibitions, and the building and stewardship of collections that focus on Michigan, its relationship to the Great Lakes, and the world beyond. The museum has collaborated with Smithsonian curator Diana Baird N’Diaye on The Will to Adorn: African American Dress and the Aesthetics of Identity—a multi-year, collaborative folk cultural research and public presentation project initiated by the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.
