Visit to the Yale University Art Gallery

March 19 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Guided Tour at the Yale University Art Gallery 

Tuesday, March 19th, 2024 at 12:30pm

Join us for a guided group tour of the oldest college art museum in the United States. The Gallery’s encyclopedic collections comprise a world-renowned collection of American paintings and decorative arts; outstanding collections of Greek and Roman art; the Jarves, Griggs, and Rabinowitz Collections of early Italian paintings; European, Asian, and African art from diverse cultures; art of the ancient Americas; the Societe Anonyme Collection of early 20th-century European and American art; and Impressionist, modern, and contemporary works.

This visit will include a tour of Photographic Storytelling: Photographs from the Permanent Collection and the Munch and Kirchner: Anxiety and Expression and highlights of the Contemporary and Modern works from the permanent collection.  Followed by optional group lunch at Harvest at 2pm (additional charge will apply).

The photography exhibition focuses on images from the 19th century through today that construct drama through an attention to detail, gesture, and staging. The 1970s saw a resurgence of forms of theatrical photography that had emerged following the invention of the medium in the 19th century, from Cindy Sherman’s series critiquing female archetypes to Nan Goldin’s personal chronicles of sex and intimacy.

The Munch and Kirchner exhibition features more than 60 works on paper, this exhibition is the first to examine the prints of Edvard Munch alongside those of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, elucidating the fascinating overlaps in their creative output and personal biographies and demonstrating how these artists suffered from—and attempted to cope with—the anxieties of their age. Both Munch and Kirchner were experimental printmakers who exploited the perceptual and emotional power of color and abstraction for creative expression and portrayed what they perceived to be a fragmented, harrowing reality. 

We also recommend visiting the Ely Center of Contemporary Art which is very close to the Yale University Art Gallery.

Meet at the Information Desk inside the Yale University Art Gallery lobby located at 1111 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT.  Visitors can park in metered spaces on nearby streets or in the Chapel-York Garage, conveniently located at 150 York Street.
