Keller Gallery

The Keller Gallery was established in the fall of 2011 with a generous donation of materials and labor in kind from Shawn Keller, principal with C.W. Keller & Associates, an architectural millwork, furniture, and design firm.

A vest-pocket space at about 200 square feet, the gallery presents faculty, student, and guest-artist work.

Exhibitions are coordinated by Amanda Moore in the Department of Architecture. For information on the current exhibition, contact For directions, look here.

Current exhibition


Architectural designer, storyteller, and Pietro Belluschi Fellow Deborah Garcia presents an exhibition and sound event that launches a multi-channel interactive sound tower

From the exhibition description by Deborah Garcia:

Can intimacy, and deep listening, be a part of our public spaces? Can sound, and sonic interfaces, allow us to dive below the surface of the built environment— beyond the facade? I use the loudspeaking power of RECORDAR as a tool for broadcasting, layering, and experiencing a live history, and, in turn, advocate for a louder, interactive form of architecture.”   

Location and hours

On view until May 12, 2023

Located in MIT Building 7, Room 408, Keller Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Rotch Library Exhibitions

The Rotch Library Gallery exhibition space is comprised of a 400-square-foot gallery, two display cases, and two flat panels focusing on interdisciplinary arts practices, works that push creative intellectual boundaries, and support research. Some topics include but are not limited to architecture, art, photography, design, urban planning, housing, community development, geography, globalization and the environment. The space is also a venue for curriculum-based shows and encourages student exhibits. The space is open to the MIT community–students, staff, faculty, and alumni.

Current exhibition: A Target

Photography exhibition by Tristan Searight, MArch graduate student

From the exhibition description:

“By exploring the everyday dynamics of mundane spaces, these photographs present a question of interest to designers and city planners: do we pay open, extended attention to spaces we intervene on—especially to those that are seemingly ordinary?”

On view until May 22, 2023

Exhibitions are accessible whenever Rotch Library is open.
