New Haven Museum Opens New Exhibit on
East and West Rock
 
New Haven, CT, December 22, 2011 – The New Haven Museum is proud to announce the opening of its latest exhibition “New Haven’s Sentinels:
The Art and Science of East and West Rock.” On Thursday, January 12, 2012 at 5:30 PM, the Museum will inaugurate the exhibition with a reception that is open to the public free of charge. Featuring many paintings and works from the New Haven Museum’s collection and geological objects from the Peabody Museum and Wesleyan University, the exhibition celebrates the local innovations in art and geology in 19th century New Haven.
The New Haven Museum collaborated with Dr. Jelle de Boer, Harold T. Stearns Professor of Earth Science, Emeritus at Wesleyan University and author of Stories in Stone: How Geology Influenced Connecticut History and Culture, on this exciting project that centers on the changes in the worlds of art and science and the significance and inspiration of New Haven’s local geology from the founding of the colony to our modern city.

The new exhibition, made possible with partial support from United Illuminating, will be on view until May 2012.

The New Haven Museum, founded in 1862 as The New Haven Colony Historical Society, is located in downtown New Haven at 114 Whitney Avenue. For more information, please contact Jason Bischoff-Wurstle at (203) 562-4183 x18 or photos@newhavenmuseum.org.
