MIT and SA+P have three main venues with exhibits that regularly feature the work of faculty, researchers and students, as well as guest artists.
The Wolk Gallery, in the School of Architecture + Planning, mounts several art and design exhibitions a year in its space. It was established in 1995 in recognition of Elliot K. Wolk, Class of 1957, whose generous donation of Frank Stella's four-wall sculpture and collage, Loohooloo, is permanently installed in the adjacent Stella Conference Room.
Exhibitions are organized by Gary Van Zante, Curator of Architecture and Design at the MIT Museum. (617.253.2825; firstname.lastname@example.org). For information on the current exhibit, contact Ulrike Heine at 617.258.9106 (email@example.com).

- Material from school publications and galleries
- Simulcast or recorded talks and lectures

Faculty and students are also welcome to use some of the monitors on an as-needed basis for laptop presentations; the content on the PLAZmA Digital Gallery will be overridden for the duration of the presentation. (You need a VGA cable in order to connect your laptop to a screen.)

The MIT Museum frequently features exhibits on architecture and visual studies in its main galleries at 265 Massachusetts Avenue, as well as in its Compton Gallery, located in the heart of campus under the big dome. The Museum's eGallery, a virtual exhibition space and archive, features sites designed specifically as virtual exhibitions, spotlighting museum collections as well as exhibitions no longer on display in its galleries.
The List Visual Arts Center, three galleries on the first floor of the Media Lab's Wiesner Building, presents 5-8 shows a year exploring contemporary artmaking in all media. Artists of national and international stature, as well as emerging artists, are featured.
