Meet New Haven: Yale University Art Gallery

One of the finest gems inside of the city limits of New Haven is the Yale University Art Gallery. Located at 1111 Chapel St. on the corner of York St., it is FREE and open to the public.

Being a New Haven native I was so surprised to learn about all of the beautiful wonders behind those doors I had walked by so many times.

Here are some pictures that give you an idea of what's inside and how great the Yale Art Gallery truly is.

My favorite painting and piece of art in the whole building was Vincent van Gogh's "The Night Cafe, 1888"
