Located at 100 Pier 4 Blvd, Seaport Studio encompasses the Teen Gallery, featuring artwork by Boston-area youth and two dedicated spaces just for youth programs; the Paul and Phyllis Fireman Family Digital Studio, part of the Charles and Fran Rodgers Education Center; and a meeting space for a range of ICA Teen Programs.
Currently on view in the Teen Gallery is From the Ground Up: Nature and the Man-Made, an exhibition that explores relationships between people and their environments, as well as interactions between the natural and the man-made. ICA teen artists express ideas about the ways in which they experience nature, the most unusual places they’ve found nature, and where they’ve seen an absence of nature.
This exhibition was organized by the ICA’s Teen Exhibitions Program, a group of creative teens that work together to plan, organize, and install artwork in the ICA Teen Gallery. From the Ground Up is on view through May 30, 2024.

Paul and Phyllis Fireman Family Digital Studio
Open to Teen New Media Course participants
Ranging from one-day intensives to multi-session or multi-week classes, Teen New Media Courses help teens develop new technology- and media-based skills such as digital photography, music production, and film while working with teaching and guest artists. The approximately 20 courses on offer, serving upwards of 250 students annually, take place after school, on weekends, and during school vacations. All Teen New Media Courses are offered at no cost to the participant. Boston Public School students may also qualify to participate in the BPS Credit-Bearing Initiative. The yearlong, advanced film program Fast Forward, a hallmark of ICA Teen Programs for more than 20 years, also takes place in this space.
Seaport Studio is a new addition to the ICA’s Boston Harbor Campus, comprising the museum and the ICA Watershed. The Watershed is open every summer in East Boston.
