2012 had quite a number of exciting arts events on campus. The List Visual Arts Center presented In the Holocene, an exhibit that explored mathematical and scientific concepts from an artistic point of view. MIT students produced a parody of the Gangnam Style video that was featured on YouTube’s front page. Students wrote, orchestrated, and acted in an original new musical Hack, Punt, Tool. Both DanceTroupe’s winter performance 50 Shades of Plie and Dramashop’s plays packed little Kresge many times. 2013 looks bright with arts coming from the List and students alike.
