The Institute of Contemporary Art’s Free Thursday Nights program returns, bringing you face-to-face with dynamic art installations and exhibits every week — all without spending a dime.

Open to all, the weekly evening event runs through the end of 2022, and among the museum’s permanent collection, you’ll view an array of 2022 exhibits, including Deana Lawson’s photographic representations of Black life, the multimedia installations of Somerville native Renée Green, opulent and joyful sculptures of Raul de Nieves in Treasure House of Memory, and Eva LeWitt’s captivating arrangements of hanging geometric forms.

Face coverings are required, and, beginning January 15, people age 12-plus must show COVID-19 vaccine proof to enter the museum.


Tickets are required and will be available at at 10 a.m. that Thursday morning.
