Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this sunny Tuesday.

Bangladeshi artists Tayeba Begum Lipi and Mahbubur Rahman bring some of the biggest social issues from across the world to East Lansing with their show "The Artist as Activist," currently at the Broad Museum. The show, which opened a month ago, explores marriage, nationality, religion and more with its works that range from sculpture to video in medium. To read more about it, check out the article by City Pulse's Ty Forquer. The show is at the Broad until August 7.
