When the Aldrich Museum opened in October 1964, it was dedicated to the exhibition of the most recent developments on the contemporary art scene. The museum has always striven to maintain the highest standards of excellence in its exhibitions, and therefore is extremely please to present the exhibition – Selections from the Collection of Hanford Yang: Art of the 60s.
Hanford Yang’s taste in collecting is uniquely uninhibited, sensitive, and personal. His is a daring and “now” collection exploring innovations and new modes of expression courageously and with élan enviable.
Contrary to somewhat popular belief, collecting contemporary art can never e approached as a potential source of financial gain – it is truly a labor of love. We appreciate Mr. yang’s efforts have been considerable, his dedication of time and study, and are honored to present his strong, exciting, and imaginative collection from the 1960s.
