DESCRIPTION

To reflect and enhance MIT's position on the leading edge of investigation into the world, using contemporary art as the vehicle of presentation and analysis

To present, through an ongoing and internationally recognized series of changing exhibitions, the highest quality, most challenging contemporary art and design by professionals practicing in diverse media

To take a national leadership role in bridging the gap and suspicion that exists between contemporary art and its potential audience by providing associated educational activities that create a context for understanding how the contemporary visual arts reflect and express the complex social and cultural issues underlying a changing world

To enhance and enliven the quality of MIT's visual environment and support the above educational initiative by encouraging direct and daily contact with original works of art through the publicly sited Permanent Collection and the Student Loan Art collections

In pursuit of its mission, the List Visual Arts Center is committed to the principles of artistic and intellectual freedom.
