Council for the Arts at MIT Borderline Mural Project webpage, 2017 June 26


Scope and Contents

The Council for the Arts at MIT Borderline Mural Project webpage provides a basic overview of the Project and its organizers, as well a few pictures of the murals in progress. The Borderline Mural Project covers a 200 foot long wall in the tunnels under the campus of MIT with murals created by MIT students. The tunnel is a commonly used route between MIT Buildings 66 and E17 during bad weather. The projects also created an augmented reality (AR) app that visually enhances these murals through a smartphone screen when holding the phone's rear-facing camera lens in front them. More than twenty-five MIT-affiliated artists added their individual contributions throughout spring 2017, culminating in a single, connected mural in May 2017. New murals and animations are added each semester.
