This Aldrich Museum is proud to present as its second exhibition a selection from the outstanding contemporary collection of Richard Brown Baker. Mr. Baker’s keen perception and sensibility for contemporary Art forms have created a collection of visual art in which all the objects are of the highest quality.
His interest in exploring new modes of expression, his courage in acquiring early in an artist’s struggle for recognition, has been an important contribution to the continued evolution of contemporary expression in the visual arts. The museum is indeed honored to be able to show so many aspects of the stimulating art of our times from the increasingly important collection of Richard Brown Baker.
