Young Collectors Board

The Young Collectors Board (YCB) at ICA Miami is a dynamic group for emerging collectors and art enthusiasts or anyone with a passion for contemporary art. Its members are dedicated to supporting the museum’s mission and fostering Miami’s vibrant art ecosystem.

The YCB offers exclusive programming for individuals interested in exploring the world of art in Miami and connecting with like-minded peers. These events include visits to artist studios, galleries, and private collections in Miami and beyond.

The YCB makes a significant contribution to Miami’s art scene each year. The group collectively funds a new acquisition for the museum’s permanent collection or sponsors a public program highlighting the work of emerging artists, curators, and art leaders in Miami, with a special focus on BIPOC and underrepresented artists.

The Young Collectors Board at ICA Miami is chaired by Jack Benmeleh and Karen Boyer.

The Young Collectors Board is open to Patron members and above with an additional annual membership contribution of $500 (total contribution is $1,500).
