Led by Yuri Stone, Assistant Curator of the List Center, the walking tour will highlight a selection of MIT’s extensive, world-renowned public art collection across the campus, both indoors and out. We will see a large-scale floor installation by Sol LeWitt, a number of architecturally-integrated site-specific artworks by Kenneth Noland and Antony Gormley, and works by Louise Nevelson, Alexander Calder, Mark di Suevero, and Anish Kapoor, among others. View the walk map and brochure. Participants will also learn about the unique percent-for-art program at MIT, the process involved in commissioning public artworks, and forthcoming projects that will be realized on campus in the next 5 years. Afterwards, visit the List Visual Arts Center, free and open to the public.
