The Institute of Contemporary Art

In 1999, the ICA was chosen as the cultural cornerstone of the Fan Pier waterfront development. The opportunity enabled the ICA to envision a  new home with expanded exhibition space, new programming, and a permanent collection – all housed within a progressive architectural statement that mirrors the museum’s foresight and risk-taking as a leading contemporary art venue. Opened in 2006, the ICA is a building of international architectural status, a world-class contemporary art venue, and an icon for Boston in the new century.
