ICA Nominated for USAToday's "10 Best New Museums" Readers Choice

Posted By on Wed, Jan 22, 2020 at 4:00 AM

The Institute for Contemporary Art in Richmond has been nominated for USA Today's “10Best” Readers’ Choice award in the Best New Museum category.

The contest was launched on the company's website on Monday and voting ends Monday, Feb. 17 with winners announced on Friday, Feb. 28.

This comes after Richmond was recently named #39 in a New York Times article among the 50 places to go in 2020.

Here is what is currently highlighted at the ICA: "Provocations: Guadalupe Maravilla," with a brief description from the website:

The second commission in the ICA’s Provocations series will be created by Guadalupe Maravilla, an artist who, at age eight, immigrated alone to the United States from El Salvador in order to escape the Salvadoran Civil War. Combining drawing, sculpture, and performance, Maravilla’s installation, Disease Thrower, draws on his own experiences with illness, migration, and the anxieties experienced by undocumented peoples.
