We have some good news and some bad news.

First, the bad news:

The Summer Institute on Contemporary Art (SICA) will be on hiatus during summer 2018. We know this news is disappointing to anyone who was planning to join us this June.

The good news is we plan to resume SICA in summer 2019.

Please return to this page for updates about SICA 2019.


The Summer Institute on Contemporary Art is a free professional development institute at Penn State. Our exploration of contemporary art and social engagement this summer will be informed by readings, discussions, and presentations by visiting scholars.

Co-facilitated and co-directed by Dana Carlisle Kletchka and B. Stephen Carpenter II. Act 48 credits are available or educators may enroll in Art Education 597A: Professional Development Summer Institute to participate in the institute followed by a five-week online course.
