Yale University Art Gallery Elm

street-hall-tree-2.jpg

 

This slippery elm tree (Ulmus rubra) grew in front of the Yale University Art Gallery on Chapel Street.  Arguably the best university art gallery in the world, YUAG opened over 180 years ago and is now the oldest art museum in the western hemisphere. This tree was removed shortly after the renovation of the Street Hall wing of the gallery in 2013.  In this photograph it is the tree on the left of the sidewalk entrance to Street Hall.
