Student Gallery Guides

The MIT List Visual Arts Center is pleased to introduce the 2021–2022 group of Student Guides who lead walking tours of the Public Art Collection.

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.

Join a public art tour or book your own group visit led by one of the Student Guides.

Please contact eponce1 [at] mit.edu (Elizabeth Ponce) to book a group tour, or visit the calendar to sign up for a public tour.

Support for the Student Tour Guide Program has been provided by the Ellis L. Phillips Foundation.
