The lottery will be run on Monday, September 14; all participating students will receive an email notifying them if they are a recipient, an alternate*, or neither. Lottery recipients will be assigned one of their five choices, and the email notification will include the loan agreement for that artwork. You must print two copies of the loan agreement and bring those with you when you come to the List to pick up your artwork. *A limited number of students who were not awarded one of their selections during the lottery process will be selected as “alternates”, and will be able to come to the gallery on September 15, 16, and 17 to select from the artworks that were not awarded during the lottery process.
If you are a lottery recipient, please visit the List with two printed copies of your loan paperwork to claim your artwork from the galleries. You must present your valid MIT ID at this time. Staff will be available from noon to 6 pm to distribute work and review the care and proper handling of artwork. Please note: lottery recipients must collect their artwork on these days; artworks cannot be held for you and no one may collect your artwork in your stead.
If you are an alternate, please visit the List galleries to see which artworks were not selected during the lottery process. You must present your valid MIT ID to claim an artwork. Staff will be available from noon to 6 pm to assist you with the steps of the selection process, give you the correct paperwork, and review care and handling procedures.
Please note: if you did receive an artwork during the lottery and do not collect it by 6 PM on Thursday, September 17, that artwork will be made available to other students during Last Chance Pick Up on Friday, September 18.
