RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Recent passersby on Main Street have been encountering a unique signpost in front of the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, according to a story in The New York Times.

Each of its prongs is inscribed with one of the seven deadly sins followed by mileage information. Six aim westward: Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Wrath, Envy and Pride. The other points east, directly at the museum. It reads “Sloth 0.01 miles.”

At “Sloth,” visitors will be fully indulged in the sin as they sink into the show’s six plush Bob-O-Pedic recliners, the story said. “Sloth” was co-curated by Sina Najafi, editor in chief of the Brooklyn-based arts and culture magazine Cabinet, and Mats Bigert, an artist and filmmaker in Stockholm and a Cabinet editor-at-large.

"Sloth" is part of "The Seven Deadly Sins," the first programmatic collaboration between the Fairfield/Westchester Museum Alliance, a group of arts institutions in Connecticut and New York, according to a press release. Each museum will present a different sin through a series of exhibitions and programs at the Bruce Museum, Greenwich (Pride); and in New York at Hudson River Museum, Yonkers (Envy); Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill (Lust); Katonah Museum of Art (Gluttony); Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase (Greed); and Wave Hill, the Bronx (Wrath).

The exhibit is on display through Sept. 19 at the museum, 258 Main St., Ridgefield.
