Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum

Founded by Larry Aldrich in 1964, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is dedicated to fostering the work of innovative artists whose interpretations of the world around us serve as a platform to encourage creative thinking. The Aldrich is one of the few independent, non-collecting contemporary art museums in the United States and the only museum in Connecticut devoted to contemporary art, and engages its diverse audiences with thought-provoking, interdisciplinary exhibitions and programs. 

The Aldrich’s innovative exhibitions have presented the work of more than 8,000 remarkable artists, and have often been the first to introduce the work of now-acclaimed artists, including Eva Hesse, Robert Smithson, Frank Stella, Jack Whitten, Ann Hamilton, Olafur Eliasson, Huma Bhabha, KAWS, Mark Dion, and Shahzia Sikander, among many others.
