Single session event

Come learn about MIT’s great public art: the world famous sculptures you see and walk past, under, or over, every day. Learn about the artists who made them, their history, stories, related hacks, and ways of discussing pieces. Also find out about galleries around campus and art in new buildings commissioned by MIT’s percent for art program.

This year the class will have two parts: An introductory class (followed by a tea break), then a walking tour of selected works by List Visual Arts Center public art curator Alise Upitis and List Visual Arts Center educator Mark Linga.

Participants are welcome at either or both parts. Each part will take about an hour; overall time is estimated 2.5 hours.
