Art lovers hoping to view the latest work at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art won’t even have to walk inside the museum.

The ICA is hosting a new work by famed conceptual artist Jenny Holzer. Instead of a canvas, Holzer is using the exterior of the ICA’s waterfront building.  The nighttime projections are scheduled for Monday through Wednesday beginning at nightfall and continuing until 11 p.m. The projections can be seen from the Boston Harborwalk.

Wednesday’s projections will include a collaboration with choreographer Miguel Gutierrez.  Holzer is known for projects that use language in public space. The ICA projections are drawn from the works of Polish poet Wislawa Szymborska. Holzer has created similar projections in cities across the world, including Rome, Berlin, Paris and New York.
