Yale University Art Gallery

Ah Yale, the alma matter of Rory Gilmore. As one of the top universities in my field, I decided to make this one of my first stops on the East Coast trip that I took last November. The campus was absolutely gorgeous, everything you would expect from an Ivy. While walking around, I mentioned to Claudia and Laura that it would be cool to go into a museum if we could find one. Well, it must have been fate becuase the second I said that I turned around and saw the Yale University Art Gallery. Get ready for a major photo dump...

 Exploring the halls. It was too cold to properly channel Rory.

 Pieced back together from over 90 pieces and over 100 chips, this is like a jigsaw puzzle for art majors.

One thing tha was so incredible about this museum was that it was completely free - to EVERYONE. Not just students. Not just New Haven residents. Everyone! I think it is so lovely that a private university of this caliber would provide access to the arts to the public.

Until next time!
