MIT’s Center for Art, Science, and Technology Gets $1.5 Million

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has given MIT’s Center for Art, Science, and Technology $1.5 million, bringing its total support for the center to $3 million since 2012. The combined grants provide eight years of funding, and are among the largest gifts for the arts received by MIT.

The center organizes a cross-disciplinary international biennial. It’s also sponsored over twenty artist residencies since it was founded three years ago, as well as backing concert series, multimedia projects, lectures (such as an upcoming discussion featuring Tomás Saraceno in conversation with MIT professor Markus Buehler) and concerts (including a performance by Terry Riley four days ago in celebration of his eightieth birthday).
