The MIT List Visual Arts Center is pleased to introduce the 2018-2019 group of Student Guides to lead tours of the public art collection and exhibitions at the List Center. The Student Guide program provides knowledge of MIT’s public art collection, contemporary art practices, visual literacy and analysis, critical thinking, and public engagement with art, architecture and environs. We would like to invite you to join one of our public tours or book your own group visit to be led by one of the new Student Guides.
