Where to see art in Boston
Institute of Contemporary Art
Once crammed into a tiny building in Back Bay, the ICA is now the cultural cornerstone of the Seaport District. The dramatic, glass-walled building houses galleries, a theatre and a café. The museum prides itself on being a platform for challenging works, while changing shows explore broader themes that unite different artists' work, or focus on individual luminaries. After you've contemplated the art, retreat to the scenic outdoor harbor deck, site of numerous performances and events.
Peabody Essex Museum
Less than 20 miles north of Boston in Salem, the Peabody Essex Museum is home to one of the largest art collections in New England (around 1.8 million works in total). The backbone of the museum’s stock is maritime art, but there is also African, American, Asian, Native American and Oceanic art from which to choose. For a break in the appreciation, relax in the atrium’s bright café.
