The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is celebrating its 50th Anniversary with a series of exhibitions and programs highlighting not just the Museum’s legacy, but also the relationship be- tween the era in which it was founded and our current cultural landscape. Standing in the Shadows of Love: The Aldrich Collection 1964–1974 is a two-part exhibition that examines Larry Aldrich’s legacy through the works of artists he championed early in their careers, a practice that continues to be honored in the mission of the Museum.
