UNTAMED: Costumed Gala Benefit

Saturday, Oct 27

GET TICKETS

Find your wild side at a costumed benefit in support of the Institute for Contemporary Art.

The ICA’s largest fundraiser of the year, UNTAMED will attract prominent community members, supporters, and art lovers from around the region and is timed to coincide with the opening of two new exhibitions, Hedges, Edges, Dirt, and Provocations: Rashid Johnson. The wild and organic nature of these two exhibitions will inspire a magical evening filled with enchanting cuisine, décor, and entertainment.

Proceeds support the ICA’s mission to present the art of our time, offer free admission and programming, and provide an open forum for dialogue and collaboration across the region and throughout the world.

Presented by the Untamed Co-Host Committee: Katie Bisceglia, Kim Childs, Molly Dodge, Neil Gregory, Maggie Jones, Aubrey Lipscomb, Laura Mills, Julia Monroe, Alexandra Saunders, Liz Valentine, and Farrar Wentworth
