It was Opening Day for their first Sunday Brunch. We happily dined in the outside covered patio. A perfect place on a HOT sunny day.
All of us were completely IN AWE when they brought out this amazing Bloody Mary, a must try, when in the mood. Look at the size of that candied bacon!
Everyone enjoyed the quality of the dishes. A great first Sunday Brunch Dog and Pony! Delicious!
Next we were off to "Sloth" at the Aldrich Museum. From their website: The Aldrich’s contribution to Seven Deadly Sins, the first programmatic collaboration between The Fairfield Westchester Museum Alliance. Utilizing the first floor and porch of The Aldrich’s historic “Old Hundred” building that dates from 1783, Bigert and Najafi do not address Sloth thematically, instead opting to advance human understanding by inhabiting the sin. The "Sloth" interpretation - Couch potato types watching TV.
Later we entered the contemporary art building to view "Circumstance". I personally enjoyed the Ruby Sky Stiler Ghost Versions where she formed Hydrocal plaster into interpretations of scholarly historical classical sculptures. According to Ruby the historical references are “not present and no longer in existence.”
Another favorite was the artwork of Elif Uras, of which many of the pieces presented were inspired by an original Iznik plate dating from the first half of the sixteenth century, on loan from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
It was a beautiful day spent with delightful company!
