First Floor Gallery Naming

You may have heard our wonderful news that the ICA’s first-floor gallery will be named for Beverly W. Reynolds, who has been a tireless advocate on behalf of the ICA and its capital campaign. More than 80 donors contributed to the campaign to name a portion of the building in honor of Reynolds, including a recent significant contribution by her close friends, Harmon and George Logan of Charlottesville. Campaign co-chairs Pam and Bill Royall and ICA donors Carolyn and John Snow also directed a portion of their gifts be made in Reynolds’ honor, bringing the total gifts and pledges in Reynolds’ name to $3 million.

Construction Update

Things are happening at the corner of Broad and Belvidere! The geothermal well installation is underway with nearly 30 percent of the 600-foot-deep wells completed. Workers are also connecting the sewage system to city utilities. And shoring of the site is taking place in preparation for pouring the foundation. We now have a second ICA web cam, (this one across Belvidere) so you can see what’s happening from multiple perspectives.
