University of New Haven Seton Art Gallery
↓ Current:  American Gothic: Classic Horror Film Poster Art and Iconography, from the Collection of  Professor Wes Davis 

 The exhibit opens Monday, October 13th and runs through Halloween, Friday, October 31st. Join us in costume on the 31st from 5-7 p.m. Prof. Davis will host a special Reception and Gallery Talk on Thursday, Oct. 23rd from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

The public are cordially invited to a stellar exhibition of Classic Horror Film Poster Art and Iconography to be held at the University of New Haven’s Seton Gallery. The exhibit will display dozens of rare posters and lobby cards from every phase of the history of this venerable movie genre, from early German expressionism in the nineteen ‘teens to the modern horror film, with emphasis on the classics that have stood the test of time.

The entire UNH community and the public at large are cordially invited to attend. In addition, special tours of the exhibit may be arranged and scheduled with Prof. Davis if you’d like to bring your class or a group of your friends over to the gallery.

  1. Contact and Visit

    The gallery is open while school is in session. As the gallery is staffed by students with demanding schedules, we strongly advise visitors traveling from a distance to call before visiting.  

    Phone: 203.931.6068

    Email: lmarsh@newhaven.edu

    Parking on the University of New Haven campus can be difficult. Our visitors often have better luck parking on Campbell Ave. There is a concrete staircase leading from Campbell Ave into Dodds Hall, and the gallery is right at the top of the stairs on the second floor.

    If arriving from the UNH main entrance off Boston Post Road, take the first left hand turn. Available parking can be found in front of Maxcy Hall. You may also follow the road around to parking near Bartels Hall Student Center. Click here for directions to the main campus.
