Behind the Scenes
Behind the Scenes (BTS) is an exclusive reception for Aldrich members held on Friday evenings prior to Sunday public exhibition openings. Members enjoy a private viewing of our new exhibitions, along with a gallery talk by a featured artist and Aldrich curator. BTS is one of the most anticipated events on The Aldrich's calendar. Our guests network, meet with friends, colleagues, Trustees, and sponsors, and enjoy an upscale event featuring an exciting first look at the new exhibitions.
For Members, By Members
For Members, By Members (FMBM) introduces a new format! Two members, one in the spring and one in the fall, will be introduced to the community through an interview posted on our Web site and sent directly to members! In addition, an offsite event in conjunction with the interview will give the featured member a greater opportunity to share his or her passion and expertise. A great way to get to know The Aldrich's community and share member experiences!
Aldrich Insiders is a series of programs designed to offer upper-level Aldrich members special access to creative minds and institutions. Members at the Partner level and above receive a complimentary invitation to attend these exclusive events! Events are offsite and include access to private collections, museums and studios. This series is ideal for collectors, those who have a passion for contemporary art and cultural and anyone who wants to learn more and be inspired by artists living and working today.
The Aldrich's membership department teamed up with the local community to arrange our newest member benefit, Aldrich Partners. A handy booklet lists special offers at local stores and at neighboring museums and cultural centers. Members show the membership card at featured participants to receive the Aldrich members-only discount.
