Public Art Collection

MIT’s Public Art Collection reaches across the Institute and may be enjoyed by MIT students and visitors alike. Outstanding examples of work by Alexander Calder, Pablo Picasso, and other major artists grace the MIT campus for all to view.  Now many of the works in the collection have additional Audio Guide commentary available featuring the words of artists, architects, scholars and curators, focusing on 51 works of art and architecture located throughout MIT.

Our  new GPS-enabled Mobile Web App features self guided campus walking tour routes, as well as  interviews with selected artist and architects.  You can access the app for your mobile phone here.
