Third Anniversary Lunch & Launch

Friday, Apr 30

12:00 PM–1:00 PM


It’s a celebration! We invite you to Join the ICA Community!


Please join the Institute for Contemporary Art at VCU for a celebratory virtual event as we commemorate our third anniversary as a dynamic community dedicated to exploring complex issues through contemporary art, conversation, and mutual learning. 

Listen to Dominic Willsdon, Executive Director of the ICA, and special guest speakers Carmenita Higginbotham (Dean of VCU School of the Arts), Chioke I’Anson (Director of Community Media), and Miguel Lopez (Writer and Curator) reflect on the last three vibrant years of the ICA and discuss the current and upcoming exhibitions and programs. Also, this is your opportunity to learn about our new membership program that unites members of our community not by amounts donated, but by values shared: curiosity, creativity, cultural awareness, diverse perspectives, and community engagement.

There will be an opportunity to pick up a free gift from the ICA courtesy of our cafe partner, Soul N’ Vinegar, all day if you feel inspired to visit the ICA.

If you make a contribution of $50 or more towards the ICA membership during the month of April, the ICA will donate a lunch to a teacher at Carver Elementary School for teacher appreciation week in May.
