All Director’s Circle members enjoy:

Often at the ICA, Director’s Circle members come together to celebrate exhibition openings and special encounters with art and artists. While not all of this may be possible this year, we are making sure that our supporters continue to have access to the ICA’s exhibitions, collection, and artists through virtual programming until we can come together again safely. Your Director’s Circle membership always provides: ​

  • Unlimited year-round admission to the ICA 
  • 10% discount at the ICA Store and coffee cart  
  • Discounts at select area businesses
  • Subscriptions to Director’s Circle communications 
  • Access to virtual programming designed exclusive for members 
  • Member pricing on tickets for virtual film screenings and performances presented by the ICA 

Director’s Circle levels and benefits

During this time, we are investing in virtual programming, with a focus on re-envisioning donor events and programs like After Hours tours, travel, exhibition openings, and behind the scenes experiences with artists, to ensure that you continue to enjoy the benefits of access and engagement as a Director’s Circle member. 

Should you choose to elect membership benefits in joining or renewing your membership, the ICA is committed to revising and resending the acknowledgement of your annual gift at the conclusion of the tax year to provide you with an accurate reflection of your benefits.
