A breath and an echo

by Lawrence Cosentino
“Art is long, life is short.” Michael Rush, the Broad Art Museum’s founding director, was not a fan of clichés, but the ancient Roman dictum was too apt for MSU President Lou Anna Simon to pass up at Rush’s memorial Sunday. A small group of Rush’s colleagues, friends and supporters of the Broad Museum, including Rush’s husband, Hyun-Jae Pi, gathered in a rain-soaked tent Sunday to honor and remember Rush, who died March 27 of pancreatic cancer, little more than two years into his tenure as director.

New in town

by ALLAN I. ROSS
Historians may look back on Metro Lansing’s teen years as its Craft Beer Era. Since 2012, no fewer than four craft beer manufacturing facilities — microbreweries, brewpubs and tasting rooms — have opened, with at least three more on the horizon.
