The Institute for Contemporary Art membership program is unlike any other currently offered in Richmond. Coming later this November, our simple three-tiered program will be easy to join and uses a unique loyalty system to reward member engagement and attendance at lectures, programs, and exhibitions. Check out the benefits below to find the level that’s right for you.
