FIRST FRIDAYS: Summer Block Party
AND ISLAND CREEK OYSTERS (ICO) AT THE ICA LAUNCH EVENT!
To celebrate the start of the summer season, First Fridays features artist-designed mini golf, as well as the debut of ICO at the ICA! Island Creek Oysters (ICO) will launch their new Pop-Up Oyster Bar at the ICA—which will continue on Friday evenings throughout the summer. Enjoy tours of our current exhibitions as well as an art-making demonstration inspired by the work on view in Barry McGee.
(P.S. First Fridays: Summer Block Party is weatherproof! We have a TENT! With oysters and mini golf inside.)
