Fodor's Expert Review Institute of Contemporary Art
Housed in a breathtaking cantilevered edifice that juts out over the Boston waterfront, the ICA moved to this site in 2006 as part of a massive reinvention that has made the museum one of Boston's most exciting attractions. Since its founding in 1936, the institute has cultivated its cutting-edge status: it's played host to works by Edvard Munch, Egon Schiele, and Oskar Kokoschka. Early in their careers, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and Roy Lichtenstein each mounted pivotal exhibitions here. The ICA's permanent collection showcases work by contemporary artists featured in ICA exhibitions, many at seminal moments in their careers.
