Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA)
Dec. 12, 2006 - Boston
The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) has unveiled its new building on the redeveloping South Boston waterfront, an eye-catching glass-clad structure the museum and city hope will become a landmark and a draw for visitors.
This four-story, 65,000-square-foot museum is the first new art museum to be built in Boston in nearly 100 years. Dec. 11 was the grand openning. People waited for more than 4 hours to get in the building, however the tents offered free refreshments and live music for arts lovers. The free openning included a live comtemporary music show:
Boston’s own Alloy Orchestra premieres its newest score for the 1927 masterpiece "The Eagle (black-white silent movice)" starring Rudolph Valentino - made all the kids laugh and cheer.
The last Saturday of every month is a playdate for children. If you bring a friend, you in pair will be free to visit ICA museum. See ICA's website at: http://www.icaboston.org/programs/families/
What is Contemporary Art? New Art plus Technology is one answer. Think the soundtrack made for silent movies. That's the start of Contemporary Art.
