Student Lending Art Program

Sign up for a chance to live with an original work of art from the Student Lending Art Collection for the upcoming academic year!  The Collection is made up of original works of art, primarily prints and photographs by leading contemporary artists.  Selections from the collection will be on view at the List Center (E15) from August 30 - September 18th, 2022. You are encouraged to view the artworks, but please note you do not need to visit the galleries to enter the lottery.

This program is FREE for all MIT Students. You must have a valid student ID.

To enter the lottery, please complete the online sign-up questionnaire by Wednesday, September 14th for your chance to take home an artwork for the 2022-2023 academic year.
