An exhibition at The Aldrich, a seasonal showcase in Mamaroneck, a Daniel Tiger appearance, and more are highlights for the 914.

January 15 to May 22

In her very first solo institutional exhibition, Milano Chow: Prima Facie, the LA-based artist conjures up elaborate, dreamlike architectural interiors populated with ghostly female figures. Inspired by Surrealism, film noir, and fashion photography, Chow draws on true-to-life sources, such as blueprints, technical drawings, and architectural tomes to craft her imaginative works, more than a dozen of which can be enjoyed at Ridgefield’s The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum from January 15 to May 22.
