Public Art Tour Natural Habitat

Dive into Public Art this summer at MIT.

Join List staff on a public art tour that entangles nature, biology, and artists! From James Melchert’s ceramic mural inspired by the behind-the-scenes processes in the Koch Biology Building, to Cai Guo-Qiang’s use of living Black Pine trees in front of the Sloan School, public art at MIT interacts with nature in a variety of ways. Discover four public artworks across MIT’s campus that bring out your inner naturalist.
