Opening: Feb 11, 2016, 5-8 p.m.
From the arresting to the poetic, Felandus Thames fills the gallery with texts that are both witty and deeply personal. Seton Gallery is transformed into a pale green huge, referencing a prison cell and serving as a canvas to comment and reflect on America’s troubled justice system. In a nation where 1 in 3 black men are reported to spend time, and profiling America’s youth has become common practice, Thames speaks to subjects that have been rendered invisible.

Contact and VisitThe 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.
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. Our address is: 300 Boston Post Road, West Haven, CT 06516
