Today, Becky, Catherine and I went into Boston and met up with Mark to visit the grand opening of the ICA’s new facility on the waterfront.
Unfortunately, the literature on the website failed to mention that you needed (free) tickets to get in to the museum. It did say that you needed tickets to get into some of the theater performances, but not the museum itself. In any case, when we arrived, we were told that it would be about an hour and forty-five minute wait to get tickets and get in to the museum itself, as they were admitting people in controlled shifts so as to not overcrowd the museum. If we had known that we would have to wait in line for tickets, we might have arrived a bit earlier, but at that point, we decided not to go in to the museum.
We did, however, take a nice stroll around the outside of the museum. It is quite a cool looking building, and it has a phenomenal view of the waterfront and the Boston skyline. We will have to come back at some point to actually tour the musem; they have free admission on Thursdays after 5, and they’re also having a free event on the 30th of this month.
We did get to see some modern art this morning, on our way to church. It was actually a set of orange traffic cones, but they were arranged around a chair in the middle of the road, so it looked modern art-ish:
Not quite as funky as The Divine Gas, though (which we could see through the front entrance of the ICA).
