An Education in the Grotesque: The Gargoyles of Yale University

$10

with Mathew Duman

Calendar Apr 3, 2018 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Join photographer and author Mathew Duman for a lecture and then a tour of Yale University in New Haven. Yale is an extraordinary place where you can observe gargoyles in their natural habitat! On this trek, Matt points out many of the grotesques & gargoyles that originally inspired him to explore the campus and to write his book: Those who have never been will find a visit to Yale's campus (60 - 90 minute tour ) to be a fascinating combination of academics, hisory, art and architecture. Those who are familiar with the campus will find that there are still many discoveries yet to be made because many of these sculptures still go unnoticed by even the most dedicated Yale. Either way, searching out these works of art can be almost as much fun as appreciating them. Binoculars recommended!
