The contemporary art museum at MIT 

The List Visual Arts Center is a creative laboratory that provides artists with a space to freely experiment and push existing boundaries.

As the contemporary art museum at MIT, the List Center presents a dynamic program of six to nine special exhibitions in its galleries annually, including a program of evolving site-specific work by emerging artists known as List Projects, as well as a broad range of educational programs, events, and scholarly publications. 

Beyond the full slate of special exhibitions and projects it presents each year, the List Center maintains and adds to MIT’s permanent collection; commissions new works through the MIT Percent-for-Art program, a collection of more than 50 site-specific artworks throughout the campus; and oversees the Student Lending Art Program, which lends approximately 600 works of art annually to MIT undergraduate and graduate students.
