Classicism, at its heart, looks towards the future – shaping spaces built to last, communities that foster innovation, and built environments imbued with enduring beauty. At the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA), we champion this intrinsic quality of classical design – offering programming that both connects us to the past and inspires us to think towards the future.
Through interactive, hands-on coursework, our New Heights, Grand Tour, and Cast Hall programs inspire thousands of young minds to develop an appreciation for classical precedent while inspiring them to think mindfully about the communities that surround them. From there, our Summer Studio in Classical Architecture and University Workshops take our college-age students’ learning to the next level – immersing them in thought-provoking curricula that inspire them to apply their skills in a contemporary context while connecting to the rich legacy of the past.
This spirit of passing on enduring traditions dovetails seamlessly with the newly-established Driehaus Curricula for the Built Environment, a slate of educational offerings that engage with the concept of healthy cities while highlighting the importance of historic preservation and precedent as they pertain to shared public spaces. Together, these programs encourage us to look with reverence and reflection towards the buildings and spaces that inspire us while thinking critically about how to shape our environment to better serve our communities’ needs.
In 2023 we’ve taken incredible strides to shape a future where classical architecture and allied arts continue to inspire, elevate, and connect people from all walks of life. To build upon this momentum, we hope you will consider making a contribution to the ICAA’s End of Year Campaign. Thanks to the generosity of our Board of Directors, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar, doubling its impact. In order to have the greatest effect and have your gift count towards this match, we encourage you to make a gift by December 15th.
As a nonprofit organization, we are calling on the support of friends like you who understand the importance of carrying on the classical tradition into the future. Together, we can usher in a new era of the organization, with programming focused upon the built environments that define today’s shared spaces and how they are fortified by the tenets of classical design.
Every contribution, no matter the size, will play a vital role in preserving the rich heritage of classicism, ensuring its longevity into the future.
