WRR meets the second Monday of every month at the
Golden Hill Health Center - 7 PM
MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND HAVING FUN DOING IT
Five years ago, Mathew Duman, a photographer and graphic designer at the Knights of Columbus headquarters in New Haven, became fascinated with creatures that had been carved into walls, arches, cornices and towers of Yale University buildings. Staring down at him from the Old Art Gallery on Chapel Street, Duman noticed pigs, dogs, squirrels and monkeys. Next door, on Street Hall, he spied turtles, tigers and crustaceans. On the York Street building where the Yale Daily News is produced, he saw a scholarly bulldog writing with a quill pen. He began photographing these sculptures and compiled them into a book entitled An Education in the Grotesque: The Gargoyles of Yale University.
We are delighted to have Matt present a show of many of his photographs and locations of these grotesques and gargoyles at our meeting Monday, March 9.
Next Meeting: Steve Johnson and Open Spaces
