Yale University Art Gallery

 

The incorporation of the 1866 arts building into expansion of the Yale University Art Gallery presented an opportunity for new outdoor sculptural display. The available site lent itself to the creation of a ‘secret garden’, accessible both from the street and from the core of the Old Campus, but discretely hidden so as to invite both unusual intimacy and the accommodation of smaller sculptural works.
A variety of settings, suitable for smaller-scaled pieces, were incorporated into a gardenesque planting of woodland ephemurals with numerous benches for quiet contemplation.
