Important Update

Visitors in a gallery at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum observing works of art on view


The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum depends on the generosity of its donors and members to fulfill its mission—championing emerging and under-recognized artists. Your contribution supports working artists, creates inspirational educational opportunities for students and families, and provides essential resources to our outstanding staff. Thank you!


Whether it is a first solo museum exhibition or a career spanning survey, your fully tax-deductible gift to Aldrich exhibitions will impact the work of exceptional emerging and under-recognized artists. Your support commissions new work, provides fabrication costs, and makes all our exhibitions possible.


Aldrich education programs allow visitors and students, many from under-resourced districts, to work directly with exhibiting artists and world-class educators to explore the themes, techniques, and materials of the work on view.

Annual Fund

Your fully tax-deductible gift provides critical operating support for The Aldrich’s innovative exhibitions, special events, and education programs.

Aldrich Editions

Aldrich Editions was established in 1998 to make limited edition works by emerging and mid-career artists who have exhibited at The Aldrich. This program offers The Aldrich community an opportunity to make an investment in an original work of contemporary art at an affordable price and to support the Museum.

Planned Giving

Our gift “is an expression of our core values. And as an appreciative acknowledgement of overall contribution and excellence, it represents our commitment to provide important and necessary future financial assistance to The Aldrich and its programs.”

-Gary and Susie Singer

Campaign for the Sculpture Garden

When The Aldrich was founded in 1964, the presentation of works in nature was a central part of the Museum’s earliest program. Works by artists including Anthony Caro, Alexander Liberman, Tony Smith, and Robert Grosvenor were displayed on the Museum’s campus year-round for visitors and the public to enjoy free of charge. Now, The Aldrich seeks to unite our entire campus by bringing the same level of thoughtful design outdoors, to our three-acre property.
