Two of the three paintings stolen from the Slifka Center were by David Gelernter, a Yale computer science professor who was seriously wounded by the Unabomber. The third was by Gelernter’s son Daniel. Together, police said Monday, the paintings are valued at $40,000.
The man also allegedly took prints from the New Haven Public Library on March 5, including one called “Elm City” by Tony Falcone. Those pieces were valued at $6,000, police said.

David Gelernter has no intention of giving up his day job, but a recent exhibition at the Slifka Center for Jewish Life of 21 recent paintings demonstrated that the computer science professor could probably make a living as an artist.
