'New Haven Museum Opens New Exhibit on East and West Rock'

NEW HAVEN - The New Haven Museum will open its latest exhibition “New Haven’s Sentinels: The Art and Science of East and West Rock” with a reception at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 12.
The reception is free and open to the public, organizers said in a statement.
The "exhibition celebrates the local innovations in art and geology in 19th century New Haven" and features "many paintings and works from the New Haven Museum’s collection and geological objects from the Peabody Museum and Wesleyan University," the statement said.
"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 statement said.
The new exhibit, made possible with partial support from United Illuminating Co., will be on view until May 2012, the statement said.
The New Haven Museum, founded in 1862 as The New Haven Colony Historical Society, is located at 114 Whitney Ave. For more information, contact Jason Bischoff-Wurstle at (203) 562-4183 x18 or photos@newhavenmuseum.org.
