.

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 their academic buildings. Mathew found that this sculpture makes its home within a style of architecture known as Collegiate Gothic which was popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries. He has collected his findings in his new book called: “The Grotesque 10: Amazing Architectural Sculpture from Ten American Colleges and Universities “ and presents a selection in this illustrated lecture, giving you a taste of the variety of ornament, history and humor these campuses have to offer.  This program will be presented through Zoom.

Free and open to all.

Registration is required and is available one month prior to the event.
