  • The Aldrich reached out to our Portuguese-speaking neighbors in Danbury with an exhibition, educators workshop, and avant-garde musical performance by Brazilian collective Chelpa Ferro whose work focuses on objects that function as art and instrument. Like all Aldrich exhibitions, it was viewed by thousands of K-12 students taking part in our innovative education programs.
