A New England Contemporary Art Hotspot
Ridgefield’s own Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum on Main Street is unique among museums. Not only does it not have a permanent collection to display, but it is the only Connecticut museum that focuses solely on showing contemporary artworks.
The museum was founded by Larry Aldrich in 1964 and seeded with funds from his art collection, which included such renowned modern artists as Paul Klee, Marc Chagall, and Pablo Picasso. Notable artists that have exhibited here early in their careers before enjoying wider acclaim include such cultural icons as Jasper Johns, Huma Bhabha, Eva Hesse, Robert Rauschenberg, and Frank Stella.
Some of the most famous exhibits at the Aldrich Museum include the following:
- Mary Beth Edelson’s Six Story Gathering Boxes (2014)
- Anselm Kiefer’s Velimir Chlebnikov (2006)
- Chris Doyle’s 50,000 Beds (2007)
- Xaviera Simmons’ Underscore (2013)
- Harmony Hammond’s Material Witness, Five Decades of Art (2019)
Additional exhibits that did not focus on one artist have covered such themes as tabletop art objects, portraiture, and contemporary Native American art.
Can SERVPRO Technicians Restore Damaged Documents?
Licensed SERVPRO professionals render flood damage cleanup for Ridgefield homes beginning as soon as mere hours after initial contact. Suppose homeowners’ electricity was affected by flooding. In that case, the team can provide power sources for mitigation tools and rebuilding services that help restore electricity to affected properties.
Among the most delicate tasks that the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) accredited professionals can offer documents preservation. A ground flood that affects a home office or living room that impacts essential business papers, family photos, or other items of great importance to property owners can often be archived digitally and potentially restored depending on the extent of the damage.
- Documents and books can be moved off-site to an approved SERVPRO warehouse during a pack-out
- Preservation is primarily done via freezing until a plan of action is formed for restoration
- Antiques and other valuables requiring specialized care can be referred to licensed professionals
