The Institute for Contemporary Art, Miami recently announced the appointment of ten additional members to its board of trustees, effective immediately. The new members— all recognized leaders in the fields of art, philanthropy, business and education—will join the fledgling institution as it continues to expand its program and influence throughout the Miami region and beyond.
ICA Miami opened to the public on Dec. 2 as the successor to the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, which closed after a clash between the board and the City of North Miami. In August, the board of MoCA announced plans to reopen as ICA Miami in a new location with more exhibition space. The museum, whose temporary home is in the historic Moore Building in the Design District, currently offers free admission to the general public, with inaugural exhibits by artists Pedro Reyes and Andra Ursuta.
The museum plans to break ground on a new 37,500 square-foot permanent home later this year. The institution will rely on the added support base and vision of its new leadership, which brings the total number of trustees to 31.
Joining the board of trustees are Dean Colson, Nancy Green, Margot Greig, Eric Feder, Petra Levin, Arlene Mendelson, Jeffrey Miller, Chandra Rudd, Laurie Lynn Stark, and Debi Wechsler.
“The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, is entering into an exciting new chapter as we expand our leadership and finalize plans for our new permanent home in the Design District,” Irma Braman and Ray Ellen Yarkin, co-chairs of the board, said in a statement. “We look forward to growing the museum alongside our new members of the board and sharing the mission of this truly innovative arts institution.”
