// Hello! ¡Hola! //


ICA San Diego merged together two of the region’s contemporary arts leaders: Lux Art Institute + San Diego Art Institute. Through a shared vision and resources, we create an inclusive living laboratory of art and ideas.

The Institute of Contemporary Art, San Diego presents experimental art and learning with a mission to question everything.

We are a living laboratory of art and ideas with an adventurous mindset. We have a vision of art education unfolding all over the place in San Diego County.
