The Grotesque 10: Collegiate Architectural Sculpture – Lecture

May 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Keeney Memorial Cultural Center, 200 Main Street
Wethersfield, CT 06109 United States

Armed with only a camera, a sense of humor and a host of frequent flyer miles, Mathew Duman embarked on a “grotesque safari,” traveling to 10 universities around the country to photograph the unique grotesques and gargoyles roosting on academic buildings. He collected his findings in the book The Grotesque 10.

Duman will present a selection of grotesques and gargoyles in an illustrated lecture, giving you a taste of the variety of ornament, history, and humor these campuses have to offer. Connecticut schools featured in the lecture include Yale University and Trinity College.

Admission is $10.00 and free to members of Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation and Wethersfield Historical Society.

Tickets are available online at or at the door on the evening of the event.
