The Arts at MIT connect creative
minds across disciplines and
encourage a lifetime of exploration
and self-discovery. They are rooted
in experimentation, risk-taking
and imaginative problem-solving.
The arts strengthen MIT’s commitment
to the aesthetic, human, and social
dimensions of research and innovation.
Artistic knowledge and creation
exemplify our motto —
mens et manus, mind and hand.
The arts are essential to MIT’s mission
to build a better society and meet the
challenges of the 21st century.
