THE NEWS

  • Toni Harp clinched a decisive victory in the Democratic primaries for the New Haven mayoral race held today. Read tomorrow’s News for an in-depth analysis of the results and candidates, and what this could mean for the future of the Elm City.
  • Even though the President’s House at 43 Hillhouse Ave. was fit to house University Art Gallery pieces and over 150 events a year, the victorian gothic mansion was not ready for newly-appointed University President Peter Salovey. Since Salovey told the News in April that he planned to move into the residence, which has been home to a Yale President since Bartlett Giamatti moved out in 1986, the building has been undergoing a series of renovations to be completed in fall 2014, according to Provost Benjamin Polak. During the $17 million dollar renovations, which include adding handicap accessibility and updating electrical and mechanical systems, Salovey’s Chief of Staff Joy McGrath is working to relocate the events normally held in the space, she said.
  • By way of Yale’s School of Architecture, a little piece of Los Angeles has taken up residence in New Haven. “Everything Loose Will Land,” which opened on Aug. 28, utilizes an eclectic mix of media to present an “archive of architectural ideas,” according to the exhibit’s wall text. It focuses in particular on the relationship between architecture and the visual arts during the 1970s, as well as the developments in each field fostered by their union. Originally curated by the Sylvia Lavin of the MAK Center in Los Angeles, the exhibit was adapted for the School of Architecture’s space by Brian Butterfield ’11, the school’s director of exhibitions.
