Three years ago, on this date, the Virginia Commonwealth University's Institute for Contemporary Art opened its doors to the public. Since April 21, 2018, the flexible spaces have been activated by the art, performances, and visitors.
As Director Dominic Willsdon said: "These whole three years, I've seen these spaces and how the building is used – and brought to life! We've had tremendous energy throughout . . . so much of it is because of the building itself."
