ICA First Fridays: Back To School


Just in time for the new school year, the ICA and SOWA galleries at 450 Harrison Street have joined forces to offer a fun new twist on art education—First Fridays: Back to School. Learn about Boston’s dynamic contemporary art scene from those best in the know: the city’s artists and curators. Mingle with local artists at the SOWA galleries, then head to the ICA for a relaxed, curator-led tour of the museum introducing you to today’s leading contemporary artists and art world trends.

Free trolleys will connect the two locations so visitors can experience the full range of events at the ICA and SOWA galleries. Trolleys will depart from the ICA and 450 Harrison Street every 30 minutes between 6-8:30pm. Trolley transportation generously provided by Super Tours.

The ICA Water Cafe will feature a small plates menu and full bar. The specialty cocktail at First Fridays: Back to School is an appletini. The complimentary drink is Endless Summer Rum Punch.

All First Fridays events are 21+.
