Bring your lunch and join us on the mezzanine for our educational series with ICA curators, artists, and staff about what happens behind the scenes before, during, and after our exhibitions. Informal in nature, these sessions will take place over 45 minutes at lunchtime featuring discussions about shows currently on view at ICA. An ideal break from the workday or studying, the Brown Bags are perfect for those interested in learning more about contemporary art and what informs the work that goes on the walls in our galleries.
This event is free and open to the public; register here.

Willis ‘Nomo’ Humphrey is a member of Amber Art + Design and is the lead staff artist at Mural Arts Philadelphia. Born in Mississippi and been on the move ever since. Living all over the U.S. and overseas has given this nomadic artist a broad view on life. A graduate of the Art Institute of Atlanta; Willis channels creative energy thru many outlets from digital design to free-flowing acrylics on substrates that range from clothing apparel to thirty foot murals. His art articulates inner freedom thru outward expression.
Kara Springer is a visual artist and industrial designer. Of Jamaican and Bajan heritage, she was born in Barbados and grew up in Southern Ontario, Canada. Her interdisciplinary practice explores precarity and brokenness in systems of structural support through engagement with architecture, urban infrastructure, and systems of institutional and political power. Her work has been exhibited at the Frankfurt Museum of Applied Arts in Germany, the Politecnico di Torino in Italy, the Cultural Center of Belem in Portugal, and in the 2014 Jamaica Biennial.
