Although the International Center of Photography is temporarily closed due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we remain a vibrant virtual community dedicated to offering an open forum for dialogue about the power of the image.

Below are different ways to stay connected with our exhibition and education programs. For updates in your inbox, join our mailing list at icp.org/subscribe. Continue the conversation with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and explore the hashtags #MuseumAtHome and #MuseumMomentOfZen to discover more online experiences from cultural institutions around the world.

Participate in ICP’s Community Open Call

In these times of quarantine and social distancing, photographs can inform, inspire, and offer much needed respite. As a community of artists, educators, and supporters of photography and imagemaking, we would love to see the work you are creating right now. Share your images and stories with ICP by using #ICPConcerned and we’ll share select images on @ICP on Instagram. Learn more about our open call.

ICP offers a variety of Continuing Education classes online, including digital workflows, writing about photography, and documentary practice, for imagemakers of all levels. Where possible, Continuing Education spring term classes will be adapted to a virtual format.
