  • Don't need to do this again. Hopefully they have more going on than what I have seen. I see it advertised, it is quite boring to be there. I have been there 2-3 times. Not much to see.  more »
  • Perfect location to catch a fun art film (it was free when we went). Very nice clean environment. Staff was very friendly and helpful.  more »
  • UICA is a great place to go to whenever. There is a movie theater inside that shows all sorts of indie movies and have snack and drinks right outside of it. I went here for a skateboarding video years ago and it was amazing! Also the art displayed here is just great. The only thing I have against a 5 star is that their is always confusion of where to enter the building at.
  • This thriving art hub, which hosts curated shows, events and films, is a wonderful getaway in the midst of the bustling city. Only $5 to enter, you are then free to roam (usually, depending on what's showing) the five floors of thought-provoking and spirit-expanding exhibits. The space itself is a work of art, and especially intriguing to me is the rooftop garden/courtyard where many folks gather for business meetings, corporate events or just a snack with a friend, with fantastic views of the city. UICA is open noon to nine daily except only until six on Sunday, and closed on Monday. Enjoy your escape!
