A Conversation with Dr. Katherine Schwab. February 9, 2012.

February 9, 2012

Poster from the 2009 exhibition AN ARCHAEOLOGIST’S EYE: The Photographs and Parthenon drawings of Katherine Schwab

This is one of those conversations where it will be hard to know exactly where to start. Do we get into The Caryatid Hairstyling Project first or the fact that 26 of Dr. Schwab’s Parthenon East and North Metope Drawings are permanently installed in the Parthenon Gallery of the new Acropolis Museum. Or maybe I should start by asking about her time studying Tibetan thangka painting with a master artist in the Western Himalayas. Or should I start by asking about her short documentary about her Caryatid Hairstyling Project being selected for screening at the AGON 2012 9th International Meeting of Archaeological Film of the Mediterranean area … and beyond in Athens this coming May. Maybe I should start by asking when she finds time to sleep or eat…but would that leave me with enough time to ask her about her work with The Bellarmine Museum of Art located on the lower of level of Fairfield University’s Bellarmine Hall?
