Art Across Campus: Public Art and the Permanent Collection at MIT
On view at MIT Stratton Student Center
August 1, 2019–July 30, 2021
Since 1965, MIT has been collecting and commissioning large-scale public artworks for all to enjoy. The Percent-for-Art program, formally instituted in 1968, allots funding for each new major renovation or building project on campus and facilitates the continued growth of MIT’s renowned collection. The current Student Center display features works on paper by Jennifer Bartlett, Antony Gormley, Dan Graham, Sarah Sze, and Lawrence Weiner, as well as preparatory drawings and sketches by Theodore Roszak and Gary Wiley. Each of these artists are represented in MIT’s public art collection, and their large scale commissions can be seen across campus.
