The visual identity of The List Visual Arts Center is based upon the architectural grid of the buildings' facade. MIT and List share similar letters, which combine to create a memorable typographic logo. The vibrant color palette reflects an important flooring installation by Sol Lewitt.

This short video (created internally at List) takes a tour of the art instillations around the campus of MIT as well as a behind the scenes tour and museum insight from the staff and curators.
