The MIT List Visual Arts Center announces the dedication of Dispersed Events (2018), MIT’s latest percent-for-art commission created by Nick Mauss for the Ralph Landau Chemical Building (Bldg. 66), home to MIT’s Department of Chemical Engineering, and one of several buildings designed by I.M. Pei on MIT’s campus. Mauss’ work, conceived specifically for Pei’s building, was produced in conjunction with a recently completed interior renovation project. Following a study of Pei’s architectural design, and the materials and color scheme for the building, Mauss created a series of large-scale majolica (tin-glazed earthenware) murals of varying scales installed throughout the atria and stairways of the building. 

In conjunction with the dedication Nick Mauss will give a talk on October 22, 2018, 6:30 PM, Gilliland Auditorium, Ralph Landau Chemical Building (Bldg. 66) at 25 Ames Street.  The talk is free but advance registration is required.  For more info and to register visit here.
