Thursday Excursions

Excursions: Thursday, June 21, 2018

We are delighted to offer four optional excursions for our conference participants this year! All excursions, with the exception of the de la Cruz Collection visit (which will immediately follow the ICA visit), will be held on Thursday, June 21, and will start promptly at 10 am; you are strongly encouraged to arrive 10-15 minutes early and to take into account Miami’s notoriously heavy traffic. Cost is $15 per person and includes admission (some exclusions apply) and a guided tour. Participants are responsible for transportation to and from the venues. You can register on the conference registration site.
