The Grotesque 10: Amazing Architectural Sculpture from Ten American Colleges & Universities
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 type of 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 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 is suitable for adults and teens.
