REDDING, Conn. -- The American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York City will unveil an exhibit on Thursday, March 6, that will include a re-creation of the Charles Ives studio that once existed in his Redding home.

Ives was a noted composer who spent the last 40 years of his life working from that studio in Redding. He was also a native and longtime resident of Danbury. 

The New York Times recently reviewed the studio and exhibition, making note of some of the finer details, such as the bottles of bitters that remained hidden. Ives wasn't supposed to drink because of his diabetes.

Exhibition hours are 1 to 4 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays. It will be closed May 24 and May 25. Admission is free. 

The American Academy of Arts and Letters is located on Broadway between 155 and 156 Streets.
