Now On View: Amy Brener: Harbingers

The latest iteration of Aldrich Projects, a single artist series featuring a singular work or a focused body of work by an artist, Amy Brener: Harbingers, is now on view in the Museum’s Leir Atrium. Part of an ongoing body of work titled Flexi-Shields (2015-present), the Harbingers are made of silicone embedded with varying found, store-bought, and organic items.

Aldrich Box: Experience Art at Home

Each week visitors are invited to check-out and take home an Aldrich Box, a traveling exhibition in a box that contains objects and prompts created by artists. The first Aldrich Box in this year’s series, creating moments, is by Ali Kenner Brodsky and features ceramic objects in a wooden box with movement prompts. Learn more about the project and reserve a Box to take home and experience today! Additional Aldrich Boxes by artists Laura Ortman and Hilma’s Ghost will be released later this year and will be accompanied by performances at the Museum.  

Reserve an Aldrich Box!
