The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) strives to share the pleasures of reflection, inspiration, provocation, and imagination that contemporary art offers through public access to art, artists, and the creative process. Previously called The Boston Museum of Modern Art and founded in 1936, the museum was known for its mission to finding innovative approaches to art. In 1948, they changed their name to what it is still called today, and has continued to pursue new emerging artists while presenting contemporary art in all mediums. Of those first introduced as subjects early in their careers were Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Laurie Anderson, and Roy Lichtenstein.
