The ICMA promotes the study, understanding, appreciation, and preservation of art works in Europe, the Mediterranean region, Scandinavia, and the Slavic world from ca. 300 to ca. 1500 C.E. These include monuments, objects and sites, both sacred and secular, from Christian, Jewish, Islamic, and other traditions. The ICMA realizes its mission by publishing the scholarly journal GESTA and a series of monographs on medieval art; coordinating conference sessions, symposia, and celebrations related to medieval art; maintaining a publicly accessible website (www.medievalart.org); and producing a Newsletter responsive to the global interests of its membership. The organization is headquartered in New York City, at The Cloisters, the branch museum of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
