We always think there’s enough time to do things with other people.
Time to say things to them.
And then something happens and then we stand there holding on to words like ‘if’.
-Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove

Orpheus said the mind is a slide ruler.
It can fit around anything.
Show me your body, he said.
It only means one thing.
-Sarah Ruhl, Eurydice

Now I’m not artistic.
I saw it was of a fellow with no clothes on –
I always wonder why it’s Art to take your clothes off:
they never put in the goose pimples.
– Diana Wynne Jones, Homeward Bounders



The Jerome B. Wiesner Student Art Gallery, established as a gift from the MIT Class of 1983, honors the former president of MIT, Jerome Wiesner, for his support of the arts at the Institute. Located on the second floor of the Stratton Student Center, the gallery was designed to be a place for students to exhibit their artistic endeavors, both academic and co-curricular.

The gallery was fully renovated in fall 2016, thanks in part to the generosity of Harold (1944) and Arlene Schnitzer and the Council for the Arts at MIT, and now also serves as a central meeting space for MIT Student Arts Programming including the START Studio, Creative Arts Competition, Student Arts Advisory Board and Arts Scholars.


The gallery is located in the MIT Student Center and is open 24 hours a day.
