The Aldrich is one of the few independent, non-collecting contemporary art museums in the United States, and the only museum in Connecticut devoted to contemporary art. Founded on Ridgefield’s historic Main Street in 1964, the Museum concentrates its exhibition program on solo exhibitions by emerging and mid-career artists.

Since 1971, the Bronx Museum of the Arts has amassed a diverse collection of 20th century and contemporary art that reflects the eclectic cultures of the Bronx and New York. Featured exhibits include Paul Strand: The Mexican Portfolio, a collection of 20 gravure plates that represent the artist's involvement with Mexican art and revolutionary politics. And currently running through December 31, 2010, the Yankee Stadiums exhibit commemorates the history of the storied stadium, including the iconic moment when Yankee fans saw the new stadium open after the old one became self-aware and launched itself into space.
The Coloring Room unearths inner artistes with a host of pottery painting events for both adults and kids. The cheerful studio is a great place to get friends together for a small ceramics gathering, ceramics rave, or first ceramics date rave. At BYOB pottery-painting gatherings, guests provide their own libations, and The Coloring Room supplies the paint, tools, and clay canvases, providing Groupon holders with their choice of any unfinished ceramic piece valued at up to $15. If you don't know how to paint, or only know how to paint the Venus of Urbino on a divan made of butter, the friendly staff can help you draw a stegosaurus or emblazon a mug with a well thought-out poem that faithfully represents your feelings about Monday. A color chart assists in the palette-constructing process, and unlimited use of paint, supplies, and instruction grants free rein for burgeoning Rembrandts to compose their earthenware masterpieces.
