Ida Ely Rubin Residency

The Ida Ely Rubin Residency was established at MIT through the generosity of Ida Ely Rubin’s friend, Mrs. Eugene McDermott. Mrs. McDermott donated the endowment in 1998 and asked that it be named for Mrs. Rubin (1923-2008). The residency has brought renowned visual artists to MIT to present public lectures and collaborate with students in free programs.
