Announcement from the ICA

ICA announcement March 12 2020

In response to the growing coronavirus (COVID-19) concern, the ICA has decided to close the museum as of 9 PM tonight.

This decision was made collaboratively with the Harvard Art Museums, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and Museum of Fine Arts to ensure the health and safety of our community. The CDC has clearly communicated that one of the most effective measures for controlling the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is social distancing. Based on that recommendation, we feel it is our ethical responsibility to put the common good ahead of any one individual or institution.

As of Monday, only essential staff will be on site; other employees will work remotely. The museum is closed to the public until further notice; updates will be shared on icaboston.org and our social media channels.

Visitor Services staff will be in touch soon regarding ticket refunds or rebooking for ticketed performances and Yayoi Kusama: LOVE IS CALLING

This is a rapidly changing situation and we appreciate your continued patience and support as we navigate it together. 

Be well,
