Hayden and Reference Galleries

The Student Loan Art Program  exhibition features well over 600 original works of art primarily prints and photographs.  A unique and popular MIT tradition, students have been borrowing artwork from the Student Loan Art Collection for their private rooms and communal spaces since 1969, and since 1977 the collection has been exhibited annually every September at the List Center.  Although only MIT students are eligible to borrow works, the exhibition is open to the general public and will be on view  Sept 5 - 17.

About the Collection

The collection is comprised of the Catherine N. Stratton Collection of Graphic Arts, established in 1966, the List Student Loan Collection, established in 1977, and the Ronald A. Kurtz Student Loan Collection, established in 1985. Approximately fifteen new works are added to the collection annually to expand the breadth of its offerings.

Support for this program has been provided by Vera G. List, MIT’s Campus Activities Complex, MIT List Friends of Boston Art, Council for the Arts at MIT, and endowments generously established by John Taylor and Alan May.
