In 2016, ICA LA embarked on a $5 million campaign to build a new home in the burgeoning downtown LA Arts District. One year later, ICA LA opened its doors at 1717 East 7th Street to support art that challenges the way we see and experience the world.
ICA LA’s founding patrons have brought the museum to life and made significant contributions to its longevity.
ICA LA’s thirty-year history as the Santa Monica Museum of Art has played a singular role on the global stage. Championing the museum’s distinguished exhibition record, a number of important artists have donated their work in support of the museum’s new building and inaugural programming.
