Amy Sadao, Daniel W. Dietrich, II Director of the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) at the University of Pennsylvania, announces a monumental gift of $10 million for ICA’s curatorial program generously given by Daniel W. Dietrich, II. The largest gift in the museum’s history nearly doubles ICA’s endowment. This transformational gift supports ICA’s artist-centered mission and guarantees multi-year curatorial research and exhibition development opportunities, which will preserve and strengthen the generative relationship between the museum, curators, and artists that is at ICA’s core.
