Favorite Museums | ICA Boston

Share Tweet Email Reddit Flipboard WhatsApp Comments

The ICA Boston was founded in 1936 as the Boston Museum of Modern Art, but it was not until the erection of the current building (designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro) that the institution became a frequent destination for me. More than the exhibitions, the space itself offers a series of hidden joys. The media room, which slants down towards the water, is a marvel. While there are other museum’s in the Boston area whose collections I prefer and whose interpretive plan I admire, the ICA remains the place I go for fun. And, in all fairness, there’s something reassuring about that nature of visit.
