HEADLINES

March at The Aldrich: Twenty Twenty, Walking on Air, Poetry, Examining Grief and Injustice Together, and Lots More!

March marks a year from when we closed our doors at the beginning of the pandemic. We wanted to take a moment to thank you for your participation during this difficult year. Your support visiting the Museum, participating in an online program, joining as a member, making a donation, and more, has been critical during this time. We are grateful.

The exhibition Twenty Twenty, which follows the events of the last year, closes on March 14, along with the corresponding ILSSA Ballot Project for Twenty Twenty. We hope you’ll be able to see these two timely and remarkable projects before they close and reflect on what has transpired in the last year.

Timed ticket reservations are required and may be booked online here.
