The Jerome B. Wiesner Student Art Gallery was established as a gift from the Class of 1983. The gallery honors the former president of MIT, Jerome Wiesner, for his involvement in and support of the arts at the Institute. Located on the second floor of the Stratton Student Center, the Gallery was established as a place for students to express and exhibit their artistic endeavors, both academic and co-curricular. The artwork display system and raised platform provide a flexible space that will accommodate a diverse range of creative works from the fields of photography, painting, sketching, drawing, calligraphy, glassblowing, ceramics, sculpture, music, dance and drama. Additionally, the gallery serves as a major exhibit space for student artists who are supported by the Grants Program of the Council for the Arts at MIT.
The gallery is located on the second floor of the MIT Student Center, Building W20. It is open 24 hours a day.
