SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30 – Enjoy two extraordinary museums on the campus of YALE UNIVERSITY in NEW HAVEN and a brief guided walk focusing on the architecture of the campus. The collection at the acclaimed YALE CENTER FOR BRITISH ART vividly narrates the story of British life, art, and culture since the end of the Middle Ages. Across the way is the YALE UNIVERSITY ART GALLERY which has recently undergone a major expansion. It is known as a center for teaching, learning and scholarship with its diverse collections from around the world. Both museums were designed by Philadelphia architect LOUIS I KAHN. In the late afternoon, we will depart NEW HAVEN. A rest stop will be made en-route to the Philadelphia area. (B)
