Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts Mission

Free and open to the public, Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts is the center for contemporary art and artists at Harvard University. Through exhibitions, new commissions, public events, publications, and residencies, Carpenter Center is dedicated to artist-centered programming and building a vibrant community around contemporary art. This community is defined by an ethos of experimentation, diverse perspectives, and making connections across disciplines and fields. Housed within Le Corbusier’s only building in North America, Carpenter Center’s projects are enriched by the educational mission of the Department of Art, Film, and Visual studies, and the cultural resources of a large research university.
