Please join us for a presentation by Mathew Duman, author of An Education in the Grotesque. The book features Mr. Duman's photographs of gargoyles & grotesques found throughout the buildings of Yale University’s campus in New Haven. Using photographs from his book, we will explore the artistic, historic, architectural & even humorous significance of these decorative sculptures and their role in communicating the identity of Yale University as a place of learning and enlightenment.
