I visited the Yale campus in New Haven, CT this past weekend. The campus is filled with artistic treasures: 1. the architecture is remarkable 2. the museums are world-class 3. there are true innovators right under your nose

The Yale Center for British Art is divine. From Sargent's to Turners in a Louis Kahn concrete and wood frame, the work and the light take center stage:

The Yale University Art Gallery right across the street is an equally impressive Louis Kahn original housing an outstanding collection of Ancient Art, Indo-Pacific Art, European and American modern art, and contemporary art and design. My hat goes off to the curators for putting together gorgeous rooms highlighting a very important collection optimized for intimate viewing.

Yale is known for being one of the top universities in the nation, but very few people know about The Infant Cognition Center @ Yale University. David Petraszewski & Annie Wertz lead innovative research science experiments studying infants. Their studies provide ground-breaking insight into how infants and young children learn about the physical world.

I forgot to mention that both museums at Yale are FREE and the Infant Cognition Center accepts volunteers for the research, click here for the FAQ's.
