The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has awarded The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum $75,000 to support its 2022 exhibitions program. These essential funds will help realize three important exhibitions: the group exhibition 52 Artists: Revisiting a Feminist Milestone, and two solo exhibitions by artists Milano Chow and Duane Slick.
“The Aldrich is thrilled to receive support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts for our 2022 exhibition program. The Foundation’s artist-centric focus is in perfect alignment with the Museum’s programming and we are incredibly grateful for their generous grant,” said Cybele Maylone, The Aldrich’s Executive Director.
In accordance with Andy Warhol’s will, the mission of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts is the advancement of the visual arts. The foundation manages an innovative and flexible grants program while also preserving Warhol’s legacy through creative and responsible licensing policies and extensive scholarly research for ongoing catalogue raisonné projects. To date, the foundation has given nearly $250 million in cash grants to over 1,000 arts organizations in 49 states and abroad and has donated 52,786 works of art to 322 institutions worldwide.
Founded by Larry Aldrich in 1964, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is one of the oldest contemporary art museums in the United States. The Museum is one of the few independent, non-collecting institutions in the country and the only museum in Connecticut solely dedicated to the presentation of contemporary art.
