New Haven Part II: The Yale Center for British Art

After we finished in the Cushing Center (see post HERE) our New Haven expedition continued..

We walked around Yale some more (hoping to happen upon a secret society of course). The above picture is of the Yale Repertory Theater where many great actors have performed while honing their craft.

We also passed the Yale Art and Architecture Building (designed by Paul Rudolph in 1963). This was a nice contrast for my recent trip to Harvard where I got to see their Architecture GSD building.

We decided to pop into the Yale Center for British Art which is FREE. Their other art museum across the street is also FREE. My next visit will involve a trip to this museum. It will also involve more Yale/New Haven exploring because there is so much to see.

Photography was probably not allowed (and there were guards EVERYWHERE) but I still snagged a few shots.. cause I’m badass as you already know.

We were running tight on time, so once we explored the 4 floors of the museum it was time to move on. I enjoyed the building more than the art (designed by Louis Kahn), but I’m more of a modern art lover so I knew this wasn’t really my genre going into it.

We continued with a quick stop to the main Yale Library (very Hogwarts) and then looped back to the car. We walked through the New Haven Green where Occupy New Haven/Wall Street was in full force. These campers are in it for the long haul, and clearly New Haven Police haven’t made them move yet like in other cities. The Green has public restrooms which makes it much more sanitary than in other cities. We passed what looked like Yale student journalists interviewing members of the camp. I liked the waving flag in the campsite.
