I have to say, I really enjoyed my trip to the Mattatuck Museum. Located in charming downtown Waterbury, Mattatuck Museum has a lot to offer. I first started my day at Mattatuck by eating on their rooftop deck. With tons of umbrellas and colorful tables and chairs, the rooftop area had great views and a quiet place that you can either enjoy lunch, or even work at. Soaking up the summer sun was a real treat, however, the real charm of Mattatuck is what’s on the inside. On show over the summer, were two of my favorite shows I have seen in a while. The first was “A Face Like Mine” which ended on September 12th. In collaboration with the Boston Museum of Fine art, this exhibit showed 100 years of African American figurative art. The exhibit showcased work from artists like Faith Ringold, Carrie Mae Weems and Kerry James Marshall. Their work, amongst many either pieces, are incredibly important works of American art that are worth the trip to go see. The exhibit also did a wonderful job of creating an interesting and informative narrative around the works which allowed me to see the art in a different light, which I really enjoyed.  The second exhibit was the “In The Wake of 9/11: Robert Carley’s Journey”. The show follows photographer Robert Carley’s journey through the United States shooting American depictions of the American flag in the wake of 9/11. Not only were the photographs thoughtful and brilliantly taken, the conversation of patriotism in today’s America was incredibly interesting and thought-provoking. Beyond these two shows, the Mattatuck also offers other amazing works and collections including historical art, for any of you history buffs. This is a must see along the Connecticut Art Trail!
