Overlooking Boston Harbor, The Institute of Contemporary Art’s stark glass façade houses a well-curated permanent collection of contemporary art as well as a rotating selection of exhibitions and performances. Visitors meander galleries lined in works of various mediums, such as the currently running video installation Isaac Julien: Ten Thousand Waves, an exploration of color and form in Figuring Color, and Anthropocene Extinction, a new work by street artist Swoon that takes over the first floor of the ICA. Promoting dance, theater, and musical arts, the museum’s calendar of performances gives patrons a chance to kick back and relax as art unfolds before their eyes. Various interactive programs, such as the family art-making workshops and vacation-week activities keep members in tune with their own creative drives by encouraging artistic exploration.
