In collaboration with MIT List Gallery, the Hayden Renovation Art Selection Team curated this collection to reflect the diversity of the MIT community and to cultivate a sense of belonging within the Libraries’ space. The broad theme centers on human expression in many forms – words, symbols, music, numbers, representation of physical self, and more. The selection of work embraces diversity, acknowledging human experience, including both hardship and celebration.
These pieces would not be visible for the MIT Community's enjoyment if it were not made possible by the generosity of artists, collectors, and donors. Art may be found on display throughout the library's second and second floor mezzanine floors.
