MIT is... 36 (of Many) Pictures and Stories
"What is MIT?" Ask the MIT community to describe the Institute and you will hear a thousand different stories.
This exhibition features 36 photos by Michael Cardinali, who was commissioned by the MIT Museum to create a digital image collection documenting artifacts from an exhibition celebrating the first 150 years of MIT, with accompanying stories. While our selection is somewhat idiosyncratic, it is motivated by the desire to include a diverse selection of stories — from the sublime to the silly. We hope that something you see, or read, or discuss here inspires you to formulate your own response to the question: "What is MIT?"
Located in the Compton Gallery (MIT Bldg. 10, Room 150), ongoing from October 15, 2012.
