The MSUFCU Arts Power Up programs leverage MSU’s strengths in the arts and sciences to create innovations in research and learning. These targeted initiatives align the goals of MSU and MSU Federal Credit Union, building on both institutions’ commitments to providing opportunity and enrich our communities.

Power Up Art Residency

MSUFCU Arts Power Up Art Residency will bring two artists each year to the MSU campus to work alongside faculty and students at the intersections of arts and sciences in connection with the STEAMpower Project. The inaugural call for artists is a collaboration between the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) and the MSU Museum, and invites visual artists of all backgrounds to immerse themselves in the FRIB laboratory environment, then showcase the resulting works in an exhibition coordinated by the MSU Museum CoLab Studio.

This year’s artists-in-residence are Abel Korinsky of Berlin, Germany and Violeta López López of Ávila, Spain.

MSUFCU Arts Power Up to Start-Up builds intentional pathways from career exploration opportunities for early high school students, to mentored internships for advanced high school students and MSU undergrads, providing cohort-based, high-impact experiential learning, mentoring and skills-based training. 

Designed to develop awareness of the wide variety of fields available in arts organizations and industries, to provide hands-on engagement in arts-related careers, and to create focused career mentoring, this program is for young adults for who are passionate about the arts and want to leverage that passion to find a fulfilling professional future.
