Grotesque Sculpture at Yale – tour

October 2, 2022 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM



Author and photographer Mathew Duman presents a Grotesque Safari through Yale University! Yale is a great place to spy a wide variety of grotesques and gargoyles in their natural habitat as well as an intriguing case study in Collegiate Gothic architecture. Mathew Duman leads walking tours of Yale’s campus located in New Haven, Connecticut. He points out many of the grotesques and gargoyles that originally inspired him to explore this and other campuses.

Those who have never been will find visiting Yale’s campus to be a fascinating combination of architecture, history, academics, art and culture. Even those who are familiar with the campus will find that there are still many discoveries yet to be made as many of these sculptures still go unnoticed by campus visitors and locals alike.

Either way, searching out these elusive works of art can be as much fun as appreciating them! Binoculars recommended!

This walking tour will last about 2 hours. Wear comfy shoes!

Space is extremely limited but there will be two tours available, 11am & 2pm. You must RSVP to attend.

Meeting place will be e-mailed to you prior to the tour.

You must provide your own transportation to the Yale campus, but if you are interested in carpooling, please e-mail us at roxbury@biblio.org and we will try to connect you with others that wish to share a ride.

A few spots are still open for the 2pm tour.
