About ICA Road Trip
While travel is limited due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the ICA has invited museum colleagues from across the country to take a closer look at one thematically connected artwork from their collection in conversation with one from ours—all virtually, of course.
Are there access accommodations that would be useful to help you fully participate in this program (e.g. captioning, ASL, post-program transcript)? Let us know at email@example.com.
Your support helps keeps programs like this – both virtual and in-person – free and accessible in this time of uncertainty. If you are able, please consider becoming a member or making a one-time gift to support the ICA.
