The Indian Cultural Society

The Indian Cultural Society (ICS) at the Birmingham Museum of Art was established to promote all forms of Indian art and culture. The Museum, thanks to the generosity of the Callahan Family and other like-minded philanthropists, has one of the largest collections of Indian art and sculpture in the Southeast United States. The vast majority of the collection is on permanent display in the Asian Art Galleries. Thus, it was a natural fit to establish a society dedicated to promoting the rich cultural heritage of India at the Birmingham Museum of Art.

All events sponsored by ICS are free and open to the public. ICS is able to provide world class programming due to the generosity of its patrons and the Museum, which provides its facilities and staff to ICS for the events.
