Lauded tech school MIT also has an artistic side. Beginning with a major commission in 1961, the school’s campus has become a hotbed of creative works in all media by major artists like Sol LeWitt, Pablo Picasso, Sarah Sze and Frank Stella. The university is also known for its artful architecture; take, for example, the Frank Gehry designed Stata Center. Audio tours available.
