About the Collections

The Plaster Cast Collection

In 2004, the Metropolitan Museum of Art donated a historic collection of 120 plaster casts to the ICAA. The Metropolitan identified the ICAA as an appropriate steward of this significant collection due to the Institute’s ongoing efforts to perpetuate the classical tradition in architecture and the related arts. The collection of plaster casts represents rare, high artistry in the craft of mold making and casting, and is an invaluable part of a student’s education in traditional architecture and the allied arts. The ICAA uses the cast collection as a visual teaching aid, enabling students to view and draw from the finest examples of classical elements from masterpieces abroad.

The Dick Reid Teaching Collection

Dick Reid is one of the world's leading architectural artisans who operated a shop and studio in York, England for almost half a century. During the time, he restored numerous Medieval, Renaissance, and Enlightenment era buildings in and outside of London, including the Somerset House, Windsor Castle, and the Spencer House. In 2005, Mr. Reid retired and donated the remaining items in his shop to the ICAA. The Dick Reid collection is a valuable teaching aid for ICAA instructors and students.
