Dine in The Aldrich’s Sculpture Garden among Tim Prentice's kinetic sculptures with artists and fellow art lovers at Aldrich Artists at the Table, a locally sourced three-course dinner prepared by the Museum’s culinary partner Hayfields Market Catering. The Shake and Stir Bar Truck will also be on site serving cocktails featuring Litchfield Distillery spirits and Black Hog Brewing beer. This seasonally inspired dinner invites friends of the Museum to come together and share a meal, engage in conversation, and celebrate local flavors and contemporary art.

Artists in attendance include: David Brooks, Ilana Harris-Babou, Clarity Haynes, Laleh Khorramian, Athena LaTocha, Tony Matelli, Ander Mikalson, Amaryllis DeJesus Moleski, Hayal Pozanti, Tim Prentice, Jessi Reaves, Analia Segal, Rudy Shepherd, James Allister Sprang, and Adrienne Elise Tarver.

*If you would like to underwrite an artist's seat so they can attend the dinner with a fully tax deductible donation, please select "Donate an Artist Dinner" on the ticketing page.

This year’s dinner highlights the work of artist Lucia Hierro whose exhibition Marginal Costs is currently on view in the Museum. Hierro is collaborating with Hayfields to prepare a special Dominican dessert inspired by one of the works on view in her exhibition. Guests will each receive a menu card with a specially-conceived work of art by Hierro to take home.

Proceeds from Aldrich Artists at the Table help support The Aldrich’s exhibition program, which provides a platform for emerging and underrecognized artists.

*VIP tickets include access to an exclusive pre-dinner cocktail hour with Aldrich curators and exhibiting artists and complimentary preferred seating for dinner. There is no member discount for the VIP cocktail hour.

Members receive a discount on dinner tickets. If you are not already a member, consider joining today!

Prices include 3% credit card transaction fee.
