Amy Sadao talks about ICA’s programs and upcoming exhibitions – an artblog radio podcast


Amy Sadao, Director of the Philadelphia Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA)  has won many awards for her work as a curator, organizer and leader in the arts. There are not a lot of women directors of art museums, and Sadao says that’s a problem. She herself had strong woman mentors and credits them for her success. We asked Amy about ICA’s plethora of programs and the museum’s free admissions, and she told us about an upcoming Nicole Eisenman exhibit in the fall and a Barbara Kasten exhibit in 2015, both of which sound great! We spoke with Amy at the ICA on April 7, 2014.
