The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum

Stopped in at the Aldrich in Ridgefield the other day...since it is "non-collecting," every time we visit it is new.

This sign was encouraging. But both Amy and I hated that exhibit.

So, why go to a contemporary art museum? Especially if some of the stuff will be annoying or lame?

For the discussions we have about them afterwards, of course. WHY do certain exhibits fail? What is art? What is good art? Is there a difference between aesthetics and taste? Et cetera. A good or bad collection of contemporary art never fails to get Amy and I talking. Try it out!
