Earlier this year The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) announced that the museum would expand and have a second satellite location in East Boston. Called “the Watershed”, the space will open to the public on Wednesday, July 4.
Located directly across the harbor from the ICAs home in the Seaport, the Watershed is in an active ship yard and is a refurbished former copper pipe and sheet metal facility. The 15,000 square foot industrial space along the East Boston waterfront increases the museum’s exhibition space by 50%.
The satellite space is seasonal open through October 8th this year then operating between late May and early October annually. Travel by boat between the two locations will be free to ICA members or with an ICA ticket.
I think this is great news and a wonderful addition to East Boston. The New York Times apparently agrees and has an article in this week’s Sunday Times, In an East Boston Shipyard, a Watershed Idea for Art. I hope the ICA’s investment in the neighborhood is a signal to other Boston cultural institutions to look across the harbor and make similar investments in this community. Visit here for more information about the ICA’s Watershed.
