New ICA Building Progress Report

This fall, the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in Boston moves to a new location on Boston Harbor. It's the first major art museum to be built in the city in almost 100 years and it's a major upgrade for the 70 year-old organization.

The ICA isalso building a permanent collection for the first time and expanding its mission as it leaves its old home in Boston's Back Bay. But it won't be unpacking as soon as expected.

The new ICA building was scheduled to open to the public on September 17th, 2006 but recently announced it would delay the debut.

WBUR's Andrea Shea visited the construction site this week and gives us a progress report.

This program aired on September 1, 2006. The audio for this program is not available.
