Sculpture Garden Groundbreaking on February 26

On February 26, 2024 The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum hosted a groundbreaking ceremony to inaugurate the commencement of its Campus and Sculpture Garden Renovation Project, slated to be completed Fall 2024

The event began in The Studio with an introduction by The Aldrich's Executive Director Cybele Maylone, followed by remarks by Representative Aimee Berger-Girvalo, Board Chair Diana Bowes, and Matt Pugliese, Deputy Commissioner and Chief Investment Officer of the Department of Economic and Community Development for the State of Connecticut.

Following remarks, the event moved outdoors to the Museum's Sculpture Garden where the speakers, joined by Eric Diefenbach, Chair Emeritus and Edward Marshall of STIMSON, donned hard hats and ceremonially broke ground on the project.

The Sculpture Garden and campus are anticipated to reopen in the Fall of 2024 with the group exhibition A Garden of Promise and Dissent.
