This fall, the Red Sox will have to share the spotlight with a new player in town — the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA). The ICA, which has moved from its Boylston Street location to an ultramodern 65,000-square-foot building on Boston’s harborfront, is the first art museum to be built in the city in nearly 100 years. Its eye-catching facade — a dramatic cantilever extending over the water’s edge — already has architecture buffs buzzing.

Dating from 1936, the ICA played a key role in introducing Boston to leading contemporary artists, and it was one of the country’s first museums to mount an Andy Warhol solo exhibition. One of the most anticipated inaugural exhibitions, the 2006 ICA Artist Prize (Sept. 17-Nov. 26) focuses on works by finalists (including Sheila Gallagher and Kelly Sherman) for this prestigious award given to an up-and-coming local artist. icaboston.org </p
