The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to announce that it will give free admission and a beer to those taking advantage of the roundtrip transportation available from New York City to the Museum on Saturdays. Take MetroNorth Harlem Line from Grand Central to Katonah; then the easy HART shuttle to the Museum.

Since 1964, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum has exhibited some of the most important and challenging contemporary artists, making it a must-see destination for artists, curators, collectors, or any one interested in the subject. The completion of the new building in 2004 and sculpture garden in 2005 improved the Museum’s ability to present the latest in contemporary art. The exhibitions this summer make full use of the state-of-the-art facility, including large outdoor sculpture, a video art collaboration, and two sound installations.

Now, The Aldrich has round-trip transportation available on Saturdays, allowing New Yorkers and tourists to have breakfast in New York and a beer in the Museum’s sculpture garden by noon. The shuttle will run every Saturday through October 31, 2007, and offer access to The Aldrich and all that Ridgefield has to offer. The Aldrich promises a great getaway for families, with fun and engaging programming on many weekends. The town of Ridgefield boasts great restaurants, boutiques, inns, a theater, history, hiking, and a wonderful downtown–all easily accessible by the shuttle or on foot.
