Free Admission This Summer at The Aldrich Funded by a Grant from CT Humanities

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to announce that it was recently awarded a grant from Connecticut Humanities to support its participation in the CT Summer at the Museum initiative.

The program invites Connecticut children ages 18 and under plus one accompanying Connecticut resident adult to visit participating museums free of charge from July 1 through September 4, 2023. Funding for the initiative is provided by the CT General Assembly, with the support of Connecticut Humanities and the Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of the Arts, which also received support from the federal ARPA.

“The Aldrich has always been a place where visitors of all ages are encouraged to be curious and explore, and this program helps to make the Museum even more accessible for the months ahead,” shared The Aldrich’s Executive Director Cybele Maylone. 

This summer at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum visitors will be able to see Raven Halfmoon’s large scale ceramic works that pay tribute to her Caddo heritage, some over twelve-feet high, in her first solo museum exhibition Flags of Our Mothers as well as a group exhibition Prima Materia: The Periodic Table in Contemporary Art which includes the work of over twenty artists all working with materials that can be found on the periodic table. On the weekends, visitors are encouraged to drop by the Museum’s on-site Studio and follow the prompts to make art in response to the works they viewed in the galleries and Sculpture Garden. The Aldrich is open Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 12 noon to 5 pm, Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, and is closed on Tuesdays. Advance ticket registration is recommended.
