Elevator Repair Summer 2018

ICA’s elevator will undergo repair this summer which will affect access to our second-floor exhibition spaces (Suki Seokyeong Kang: Black Mat Oriole and The Last Place They Thought Of), mezzanine, and terrace. We want to ensure your visit will be an enjoyable one and address any accessibility concerns. Please call ahead and speak with Paul Swenbeck, Chief Preparator & Building Administrator, at 215-746-1472 or email: We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
