Radius: Professional Practice Series for Artists

Radius is designed to strengthen and enrich the vibrant artist communities that surround the Museum by creating a nexus for exchange and shared experiences, fostering collaboration and communication, and providing training and expertise that enable our artist constituents to further their goals.

Programs include professional practice seminars, workshops, and networking events, as well as opportunities to explore and develop new perspectives and ideas through inspirational field trips to the unique natural environments and points of interest near The Aldrich, including places of historical, architectural, and cultural significance.

Radius programs are open to visual artists living or working in Connecticut and its neighboring states: Massachusetts, New York, and Rhode Island.

If you would like to receive updates on the program, please sign up for our email list.


Submitting applications for exhibition opportunities

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum's mission is to present the most significant and engaging contemporary art to the public; opportunities for inclusion in our exhibition program are very limited and highly competitive.

We do not review any unsolicited materials sent by artists as the administrative time needed to properly review such materials is beyond the Museum's capacity.

We do, however, offer open calls for specific exhibitions and consider submissions made through an online application process. There is currently no open call at The Aldrich. Please check back regularly for new opportunities.

Please note that we are not responsible for any unsolicited artists' materials sent to the Museum and that such submissions will not be reviewed and/or returned.
