Lazy Sundays @ the ICA

Museums never fail to inspire. A relaxing Sunday at the new ICA was a time well spent today. I loved the lobby wall mural, "The Divine Gas", by Japanese artist, Chiho Aoshima. (click on images for a larger view.) This space is actually called the Sandra and Gerald Fineberg Art Wall, and is dedicated to original work commissioned from a new artist each year. (This mural will be replaced 10/07.) Learn more about the artist and The Divine Gas here.


A few exterior shots...


The ICA is one of the first designed by NYC architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro in the United States. They are currently working on the redevelopment of Lincoln Center in NYC, including a 45,000 square ft expansion of the Juilliard School and a complete renovation of the Alice Tully Hall.

A view from the side of the building looking over the Boston harbor at the city skyline.

Psst: If you live in Boston or plan to visit, the ICA gift shop carries nearly the same merchandise at the MOMA in NYC (it's just a smaller space).
