Through our Campus Loan Art Program, we are able to make artwork from our Permanent Collection available to administration, faculty, and staff offices. Peak inside the offices and hear from participants about how the artwork impacted them and their space!

This new website was created in part to support the digitization of the List Center's exhibition archive. Past exhibitions now include archival images dating back to 1985 when the List Visual Arts Center was founded.
