Here’s my newest baby: the VCU ICA, the project I’ve been working on since moving to Richmond almost a year ago. I’m helping Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts (the #1 public art school in the country, did you know?!) on communications for its exciting new art center, the Institute for Contemporary Art, which is planned to open in 2015.
This is a dream come true: working with one of the nation’s leading creative centers on a project that will be transformational for Richmond, it’s art community and the next generation of artists who study at VCU. I’m in heaven. Just LOOK at the place!
The architect, Steven Holl, is brilliant. He designed a thoughtful building with flexible spaces that can be used for all sorts of cutting-edge exhibitions and performances. The idea is that today art takes on a variety of forms and the space needs to allow for experimentation and collaboration across all medium.
Stay tuned! I’ll keep you updated along the way.
