Updated July 2, 2020
Given the revised order for the State of California regarding COVID-19 closures, museums have been ordered to close for the next three weeks. Unfortunately, we will not be able to welcome visitors by appointment as planned. We will follow up with those who have made appointments. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Our next exhibitions are scheduled to open September 27, 2020.

The safety and well-being of visitors and staff is our top priority. After careful consideration, to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), ICA LA will be temporarily closed to the public, effective immediately.
We will continue to monitor the situation and assess the need for continued closure in response to developments surrounding COVID-19, and recommendations from local, state, and federal agencies.
