DescriptionEstablished in 1967 the Housatonic Museum of Art’s (HMA) collection continues to grow and now contains almost 4,000 works of art that span ancient through modern times.

The permanent collection is displayed throughout the Housatonic Community College campus, while the Burt Chernow Galleries host changing exhibitions every six weeks featuring national, regional, and local artists as well as the annual student art show.

Gallery Talks are offered by the director, guest curators, exhibiting artists, conservators, authors, and scholars to add depth and meaning to the current exhibits.

For the enjoyment of families, a series of brochures has been developed for parents and children to use during their museum visit. These guides allow a self-guided tour and provide questions, activities, facts, and fun that families can share and discuss to enhance their museum experience.

The Peer Docent Program is a partnership between the Housatonic Museum of Art and the Aldrich Museum in Ridgefield. It provides Bridgeport teenagers with an opportunity to participate in an object-based learning program that promotes critical and visual thinking.
