THE NEWS

  • A 14-year long renovation project will draw to a close by early March as the Yale University Art Gallery gears up to open its doors in December.

    The $135 million construction project involves a sweeping restoration and rehabilitation of the Gallery’s existing space and an extension resulting in 69,975 sq ft of exhibition space in total, said Jock Reynolds, the director of the Art Gallery.

    The renovation will reclaim all of the space in three buildings on Chapel St. that have housed the Art Gallery’s collections at various times since its opening in 1832: Street Hall, the Old Yale Art Gallery designed by Egerton Swartwout and the building designed by Louis Kahn that has remained open through the latest round of construction.

  • After four of his officers were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation last Tuesday for systematic mistreatment of Latino residents, East Haven Police Department Chief Leonard Gallo will resign Friday.

    East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr. announced this resignation Monday morning press conference at Town Hall. The officers were indicted on several counts of excessive force, false arrest and conspiracy against rights — that conspiracy, the indictment said, included a “Co-conspirator 1” who impeded investigation into the misconduct and helped create a “climate of fear” in the local community.

  • Silliman College dining hall’s move to eliminate of trays this semester, following the lead the Trumbull and Morse/Stiles dining halls, is receiving criticism from students and dining hall staff. Over the past three years, the Student Taskforce for Environmental Partnership (STEP) has been coordinating with Yale Dining to present residential college masters with evidence that trayless dining reduces food, water and energy waste. Silliman master Judith Krauss said she will has heard both positive and negative responses to the initiative during the first two weeks of school, and she said Silliman will remain without trayless until at least the end of the semester.
