Student Events

The List Visual Arts Center is more than a contemporary art museum: it’s an active gathering place, education center, and workspace for college students right on MIT’s campus. Read more to find out how you can get involved with student-centered events and programs.  

 Graduate and undergraduate students from MIT and beyond are invited to get to know the List and contemporary art:

  • Experience museum mashups: view our exhibitions through the eyes of MIT graduate students in the interdisciplinary Graduate Student Gallery Talk series
  • Borrow an original work of art from the Student Lending Art Program collection for your living space
  • Set up a guided tour of the current exhibition or permanent collection for your residence, your group, or your friends
  • Take a field trip and encounter the art world in Boston and Cambridge
  • Discover contemporary art through special classes and workshops with artists, museum staff, and art experts
  • Participate in a monthly Slow Looking Art Workshop for a mindful, art-focused study break
  • Further your career in the art world by interning or volunteering at the List
