ICA summers are back! Join us on the waterfront every Friday this summer for evenings of art and live music. Grab your friends and enjoy contemporary art, critically acclaimed musicians, and breathtaking views—all in one evening. Explore the galleries, shop at Virgil Abloh’s pop-up “Church & State,” the ICA Store, and kick back on the harbor with cocktails and live musical performance.

Miranda Rae is an R&B singer/songwriter born in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In December 2020, the Boston Music Awards awarded her the title R&B Artist of the Year. With the recognition, Miranda Rae is ready to show what’s in store for 2021. In the fall of 2019, Miranda Rae debuted her sophomore EP Excuse My Baggage. Truly expressing herself and giving fans another chance to see how she has grown as a vocalist and artist. “Thinkin Bout You” became the top single from the project, and dubbed a classic. This timeless record gave Miranda Rae not only fans from Boston, but from different countries all over the world. “Excuse My Baggage” caught the attention of the city and in less than a year, people knew who Miranda Rae was. With the support of the city, she’s been seen in local articles like WERS 617 day and Allston Pudding.
