ICA to Reopen

After extended construction delays, the Institute of Contemporary Art is set to open on December 10! The ICA, Boston's home for truly groundbreaking art, outgrew its previous home for the last 70 years on Boylston St, so they built the first new museum in Boston in nearly a century.

The new building is breathtaking. The galleries are on a cantilever that extends right to the edge of fan pier; when you're up against the windows, all you see is water. There are so many amazing design highlights about this building, I can't list them all.

In related ICA news, local designer and fellow skateboarder (well, I'm a former skateboarder) Nick Sherman announced that his sister, Kelly Sherman, is one of four finalists for the 2006 Foster/ICA Artist Prize. The show will be up from December 10 through March 11, and admission on the first day is free!
