Millard: “My art career began one evening as I started to drop my application for taking the Law Boards in the mailbox outside Timothy Dwight. Thinking there might be some other vocation that would provide more nourishment and excitement for my soul, instead of mailing the application I found an off-campus course in beginning drawing to see if I could acquire drawing skills to supplement my engineering background, in order to pursue an architecture degree.” Click to continue

Marc: “With one exception, art and design have always been important parts of my life, though mostly expressed in very personal and internally-directed ways. The exception was during medical school, when I earned my tuition through medical illustration. Illustration was largely abandoned as the world of clinical practice consumed me, though the ‘itch’ of creative design got largely ‘scratched’ by my evolving career as a health care consultant and founder and CEO of a consulting firm.” Click to continue

Lance: “I began my work in illustration, book design, and typography during my sophomore year in the Jonathan Edwards College Press, and have never stopped. I also work half-time as a professor in graphic design and photography. Currently I’m involved in Universal Design for Learning at a community college, making education more accessible — especially for students with disabilities. My writings on design history, technique, and theory have appeared in numerous peer-reviewed books and journals. My wife Cindia Sanford and I live in Merrimac, Massachusetts.”

George: “When we were at Yale, I’m pretty confident that not many of our classmates would have predicted I’d eventually become President. And I’m 100% certain that not a single one of us, including me, would have predicted I’d ever become an artist. Yet at the suggestion of Yale professor John Lewis Gaddis, in 2012 I read Winston Churchill’s essay, Painting as a Pastime. It inspired me to become an unlikely student of art and take up the pursuit. I’ve been painting ever since.” Click to continue

Bob: “After our Yale graduation, I felt envious of classmates whose apparent sense of purpose and direction led them onto career paths that foretold happiness and prosperity. My impending three-and-a-half-year Navy commitment would surely leave me in the rear view mirrors of those with an insurmountable head start. Nearly 50 years later, a fascinating career as a portrait painter has made a little early wandering in the weeds well worth the wait.”

Greg: “My father, George G. Gallico, Jr., was an excellent artist and started me on the way as a youngster.”All through grammar and high school I managed to begin the art side of my life at a local art school with my parents’ encouragement. The opportunities later to study art ‘on the side’ at Yale were excellent. Professor Dean Keller at the Yale Art and Arch School developed my main long-term interest in figure and portrait painting while biochemistry guided me toward my career.” Click to continue

Lanny: “’Homage to a Square’

“As much as my history of art major opened my eyes to the worlds of art, and the arts of the world, after a couple years I tired of my formulaic approach to writing papers and attending lectures. I signed up for some actual art courses. Instead of observing artists, I got to be one. Two courses were just what I needed. One was a painting course that gave me a big studio where I could try out big canvases and feel important.” Click to continue

John: “As an undergraduate, I took several studio art courses designed to teach students how to see accurately. After the arduous process of learning the rules, I became an abstract painter. I made large-scale gestural paintings for over 30 years. For the past 10 years, I have concentrated on photography. My photographs show things that I encounter by chance on long walks in Minnesota, where I live. They tell simple and heartfelt stories about everyday life in early 21st century America.
