Selections from the Collection
The Dean’s Gallery presents Selections from the Collection, featuring fourteen prints from the List Visual Arts Center’s Student Loan Art Collection.
This exhibition is the third in a series highlighting works from the Collection. This popular program, initiated in 1966, offers MIT undergraduate and graduate students, as well as student groups, the chance to borrow important artworks by leading contemporary and 20th-century artists for their living or work spaces for the academic year.
The collection is a wonderful art resource for students, providing them with exposure to examples of recent work from regional and international artists. Most students have had little experience living with original works of art; this lending program helps start a relationship that may lead to making art, visiting museums and galleries, or collecting art.
These works represent a variety of different printmaking techniques (including letterpress, silkscreen, etching, and lithography) and stylistic approaches (both representational and abstract) as well as artists. Frequent visitors to The Dean’s Gallery will recall that Varda Chryssa and Pat Steir have been exhibited previously.
The works on display were removed from the Loan Program this year because their frames needed repairs. The List Visual Arts Center is grateful to the Dean’s Office of the Sloan School of Management for helping to reframe these works so that they will be available again for students to borrow next year and for years to come.
