This fall, VCU will throw a party to unveil its new crown jewel.

The Markel Center at the VCU Institute for Contemporary Art, or ICA, will open Oct. 28, with a day-long festival planned for the surrounding blocks.

“We’ll be holding a block party, shutting down Pine St., and maybe part of Grace St.,” said ICA Director Lisa Freiman. “We want it to be a celebratory event for the Richmond community.”

The project broke ground in June 2014, and will be 43,000 square feet. The center was designed by Steven Holl Architects.
