Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series
Returns to the ICA!
After four European destinations, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series—the most prominent competitive platform for the sport—makes its fifth stop in one of America's oldest cities, here at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston.
For the second consecutive year, the ICA hosts the only US stop in the 2012 World Series. During this spectacular event, the competitive divers will use a specially built platform on the cantilever roof of the ICA building on Fan Pier, which soars 80 feet above the water's edge.
The public can view the festivities free of charge. The best vantage points for viewing the competition are on the ICA Grandstand and outside the Water Café. Public areas along Fan Pier provide additional space for spectators.
With gallery admission, visitors are also invited to view the event in the fourth-floor John Hancock Founders Gallery.
Enjoy the entire event from the ICA! The museum is open until 9pm on August 25.
There will be jumbo screens on the ICA plaza for easy viewing.
