LIST Visual Arts Center
DISTANCE FROM HOTEL: 3.1 MILES
The List Visual Arts Center, MIT’s contemporary art museum, collects, commissions, and presents rigorous, provocative, and artist-centric projects that engage MIT and the global art community. The List Center presents a dynamic program of six to nine special exhibitions in its galleries annually, including a program of evolving site-specific work by emerging artists known as List Projects, as well as a broad range of educational programs, events, and scholarly publications.
Beyond the full slate of special exhibitions and projects it presents each year, the List Center maintains and adds to MIT’s permanent collection; commissions new works through the MIT Percent-for-Art program, a collection of more than 50 site-specific artworks throughout the campus; and oversees the Student Loan Art Program, which lends approximately 600 works of art annually to MIT undergraduate and graduate students.
Just as MIT pushes at the frontiers of scientific inquiry, it is the mission of the List Visual Arts Center, to explore challenging, intellectually inquisitive, contemporary art making in all media.
