List Visual Arts Center information
The stated goal of the List Center is to explore the boundaries of artistic inquiry – to use art to ask questions, not only about aesthetics, but also about culture, society and of course science. Rotating exhibits push the contemporary art envelope in painting, sculpture, photography, video and just about every other medium imaginable.

The university’s progressive Percent-for-Art program requires that a certain percentage of every new building and renovation project be earmarked for art acquisitions.
