Mathew Duman saw no gargoyles while attending Central Connecticut State University. Yale's grotesqueries caught his attention while he worked as a photographer & graphic designer for Knights of Columbus in New Haven.

Mathew Duman will share some images from his recent book, The Gargoyles of Yale University, pointing out the history and architectural significance of these cool grotesques.
