Photographer Yulla Lipchitz made a gift to the Institute of three monumental bronze sculptures by her late husband, renowned 20th century sculptor Jacques Lipchitz. The gift was made in memory of the late MIT President Jerome B. Wiesner, founder of the Council for the Arts at MIT. The three sculptures, Birth of the Muses, Sacrifice III, and Hagar in the Desert have been on extended loan from Mrs. Lipchitz, a former member of the Council and friend of Dr. Wiesner.
