Spotlight on Arts and Culture

This month on Spotlight on Arts and Culture: Richard Klein, an artist himself, is retiring from his post as executive director at the Aldrich Museum. Hear how he and The Aldrich have evolved over the 30 years of his tenure, since the day he was first involved when Larry Aldrich created his museum of contemporary art. Hear about some of the most outstanding and controversial of the 100 exhibits Richard has curated and co-curated at the Aldrich, and what exciting projects he has up his sleeve for his next phase.
