Did you know there was a contemporary art museum in Connecticut?! I DID NOT. The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is in Ridgefield, CT. also known as the “practically New York” part of Connecticut. For such a small state, I’m surprised things hide so well here.
The one thing I don’t like about the titles “contemporary art” and “modern art” is that the titles seems so selfish. Modern and Contemporary are adjectives that describe the current time period. Yet, in the art world these terms lose their adjectival purposes and instead seem to encompass very specific types of art. As an uneducated buffoon of the art world, this is all very confusing to me.
Either way, I’m excited to visit Ridgefield for the first time this February. I thought I had mostly exhausted the major museums of my state.
