The Aldrich Benefit Bash

Honoring Jessica Stockholder
Benefit Chair, Lucy Mitchell-Innes

The Aldrich Benefit Bash is the single most important fundraiser of the year. This event continues the Museum’s tradition of fostering artists who are at the forefront of contemporary art, mounting exhibitions that have a lasting impact in our field, and presenting dynamic education and public programs in our community.

Honoring Jessica Stockholder
Jessica Stockholder’s career in the visual arts now spans more than thirty years, including over seventy solo exhibitions worldwide and representation in numerous major public and private collections. Her work, which has had a significant impact on contemporary sculptural practice, is categorized by a deep love of color and a focused engagement with the intersection of pictorial space and the physicality of the material world. Stockholder first exhibited at The Aldrich in 1993, and in 2011 she presented Hollow Places Court in Ash-Tree Wood, a major solo exhibition based on the wood from a 130-year-old ash tree that had been removed from the Museum’s Sculpture Garden. Stockholder is also known for her writing on art and her commitment to teaching, which includes her appointment in 2012 as Chair of the Department of Visual Art at the University of Chicago.
