The ICA displays a lot of artwork from non-US artists. On Thursday evenings, the admission fee is optional, making it a great place to go if you are a poor student or young professional. The exhibits are "temporary", so if you know of an exhibit that you want to see at the ICA, then you better go see it as soon as possible! Since the exhibits are temporary, there is always something new on your next visit to the ICA. The gift shop is cute and has "unusual" items for sale.
