Grotesque Sculpture Tour at Yale (Free)

August 15, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Grotesque Sculpture Tour at Yale (Free)

Author and photographer Mathew Duman presents a Grotesque Safari through Yale University on Saturday, August 15th, 2020 from 1 to 3 pm.

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!

Meeting place will be e-mailed to you prior to the tour. You must provide your own transportation to the Yale campus. Masks will be required during the tour.
